This will be the third year for the enormously popular program, ‘Stay the Night ‘ the Alma Tikkun,’ a multifaceted array of music, film, and traditional and non-traditional study on the first night of Shavuot. This modern Tikkun Leil Shavuot is centered at the Manhattan JCC, on the West Side of Manhattan, and the 92nd Street Y, on the East Side. Started by Ruth Calderon of Alma College, and in partnership with Dor Chadash and the Y, the program is supported by UJA-Federation and co-sponsored by The Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning at Temple Emanu-El. This year Rabbi David Greenstein, Rabbi-in-Residence at AJR, will join other teachers, artists and musicians in a program focusing on story-telling. He will be conducting a session, entitled, ‘Why Does the Torah Begin with Stories?’ Click here to go the the Stay the Night – Alma Tikkun website.
