Tikkun Leil Shavuot: details

Saturday Night May 23, starting at 8:30pm 

Emanu-El—the Little Shul That Could—has lined up a fascinating
array of scholars and subjects to engage our minds and hearts this Shavuot.

Here is a taste of our lineup for learning:

  • Joelle Lake will give us an overview of Dead Sea Scrolls Study
  • Andrew Gow will be teaching about The Spiritual and Political Tensions of Jewish Life in the Diaspora.
  • Charlotte Schallie will share some of her research regarding the
    effects of attitudes towards Israel on the Jewish communities worldwide
  • Lincoln Shlensky is offering a roundup of insights into current
    events in the Middle East
  • Rabbi Harry will lead us in Vedic Breath work in a Jewish context
  • Rick Kool will offer insights into environmental awareness and
    personal practice
  • Jonathan Orr-Stav gives a sneak peek into the long lost story of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Turquoise Goddess, in which he proves who invented the alphabet. 

It is going to be a night of friendship, learning and mind
expansion you don’t want to miss it.
