May 25, 2023

Shavuot 5783

V’Kol N’tivoteha Shalom: Family Feud and the Search for Peace

Given protests in Israel that pit Jew against Jew, this year’s Tikkun Leyl Shavuot explores arguing within and against our Jewish family. Join us as we dive into questions that challenge us to consider conflict and search for paths of peace.
We are excited to welcome guest scholars Rabbi Debra Rappaport, Rabba Dalia Davis in collaboration with Darchei Noam Congregation and Dr. Shayna Sheinfeld; Assistant Professor of Religion at Augsberg University to engage us in all night learning alongside our Beth El Clergy.
