Stay the Night

Sun, May 16, 8:30 pm–Mon, May 17, 5 am
All are invited to join us for Tikkun Leil Shavuot, a special virtual night of learning and community. We'll bring the revelation, you bring the cheesecake!

Highlights of our 2021 schedule include:

  • Performances by The Bengsons, Israel Story Live, and more
  • A Conversation with Mandy Patinkin + Kathryn Grody
  • The Diversity of Asian American Jews with Gen Xia Ye Slosberg
  • This Is Torah: Sex + Judaism with Rabbi Jen Queen
  • Cheesecake Making with Pastry Chef Tracy Wilk
  • Mindfulness: The New Normal with Dr. Mark Bertin + Dr. Chris Willard
  • Daf Yomi: A Page of Talmud with Elisha Wiesel and Rabbi Joy Levitt
  • Digital Diaspora: Between Clubhouse and Covenant with Ari Hoffman
  • The Wisdom of Shavuot with Rabbi Michael Paley
  • The History of Israeli Protest Movement with Ittay Flescher
  • ...and so much more!


  • For the past 17 years, we have gathered for Shavuot, typically at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan's home on West 76th Street on New York City's Upper West Side and since 2020, online. No matter the location, our Tikkun Leil Shavuot includes all-night learning, discussion, and incredible performances. It’s a magical night and we cannot wait to celebrate, study and experience the holiday together.
