FREE All-Night Journey Through Culture, Conversation, Ritual & Cheesecake May 23rd!

This year, Saturday night May 23rd, begins the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which celebrates the revelation of the Torah to the Jewish people. Traditionally, it is celebrated by studying the Torah and other Jewish texts all night long in a ritual known as Tikkun Leil Shavuot. We’re giving the ritual a contemporary spin as we go INTO THE NIGHT for a nocturnal journey through culture, conversation, ritual and cheesecake! From 7pm to 2am, artists, musicians, authors, dancers, scholars, yogis, chefs and rabbis take over the entire building at The 14th Street Y.
