Tikkun Leil Shavuot

Tuesday, June 11 at 7:00 p.m.

A Shavuot tradition is to stay up all night and study. At Beth Shalom, our evening of learning ends a lot earlier! Join Rabbi Greenspan and the Adult Education Committee for three learning sessions, desserts and a service.

These sessions were created in partnership with the Pardes Makhloket Matters Fellowship, an education program that seeks to teach healthy disagreement and growth through difficult conversations.

1: Machloket l’Shem Shamaiim: How do I know if the debate I am engaged in is “For the Sake of Heaven” or not? How can I listen in full?

2: Where am I Coming From? Explore the core values that make you who you are, and understand how they can sometimes actually make it difficult to listen to others.

3: Let’s Try: Explore how others come to their values, and how we can embrace differences for a fuller community of growth.
