Join us as we celebrate the revelation of Torah with learning, song, poetry, and more! We’ll join together with Temple Beth El of City Island and Rabbi David Markus for a joint festival celebration online via TBE’s Zoom room. We’ll begin at 7:30pm with Festival Ma’ariv (evening prayer) featuring some beautiful melodies we don’t usually hear and the joyful psalms of Hallel.
Our Tikkun Leyl Shavuot (late-night learning) will begin at 9pm with our keynote Hearing Voices: What Poets Do, a poetry reading and conversation with acclaimed poet Rodger Kamenetz, author of The Missing Jew: New and Selected Poems 1976-2022. If you have any of Rodger’s books, please have them on hand, as they will help to inform the Q&A / conversation that flows after he shares some poetry! Here’s some praise for his New and Selected volume:
Other lessons will include:
- I Wrote and Gave Myself, with R. Rachel Barenblat
- Kol Dodi Dofek / The Voice of the Beloved Knocks, with R. David Markus
- In Our Own Voices: Torah (Not-So-)Mad Libs
