Celebrate Shavuot! JCC East Bay is holding its annual Tikkun Leyl Shavuot all-night learning! Get ready for a unique celebration and night of learning – a spiritual journey bringing together people from a variety of perspectives and affiliations. Come for an hour or stay the whole night! We will be joined by teachers from our diverse Bay Area Jewish community.
Ariel Vegosen and Benjamin Koatz will be leading an hour-long training on behalf of Keshet about genderqueer identities in Jewish texts. Come delve into Jewish tradition with these lively, smart teachers who will explore Judaism outside of the binary.
Childcare: We are offering free childcare/sleeping room from 8:00 pm to 7:00 am for ages 2 and up. Parents may not leave the JCC while their children are in childcare. Parents must provide bedding and pre-register their child(ren) online by Thursday, May 25th at: http://tinyurl.com/tikkunchildcare.
