Seeing One Another at Sinai: A Minnesota Night of Revelation

On Shavuot, when our calendar marks the giving of the Torah, there is a custom to stay up late or even all night as if we were there at Mount Sinai. Join teachers across the Twin Cities for a night of prayer, study, conversation, and community as we participate in ongoing revelation from generation to generation.

We want these programs to be accessible to all. If you need accommodations, such as ASL interpretation, please email communications@templeisrael.com.
