The Limmud Chavruta Project is delighted to launch the second in a series of five e-resources over the course of 2018 to mark Israel at 70, in partnership with UJIA. As part of the tradition of studying at a Tikkun Leyl Shavuot, we offer you a selection of texts, questions and conversation-starters so can study all night.
This is the fifth Tikkun Leyl Shavuot resource created by the Limmud Chavruta Project, and this year the theme is Pilgrimage. How are the spiritual and the physical related? Is the journey more important than the destination? What is Jewish pilgrimage today, after the destruction of the Second Temple? What is the role of the Land of Israel in pilgrimage?
Intrigued? Grab a partner to study with, or a group, download the texts and get the discussion going!
This year Shavuot begins on the evening of Saturday 19 May. If you are preparing an event for Tikkun Leyl – whether in your synagogue, community, organization or just with family and friends – don’t forget to schedule a slot for Chavruta learning with our download.
The Limmud Chavruta Project is a fresh twist on an ancient tradition – a broad selection of modern and ancient texts, in Hebrew with English translation, for you to explore with a partner or group.
Plus it’s even more fun knowing that fellow Limmudniks around the world are engaging with the same texts, questions and discussions too. We will shortly be releasing this resource in French, Spanish, Hebrew and Russian, so check out the website in due course.
You’re welcome to get in touch for assistance with using this material – email us and we’ll be happy to help. And we’d love to know how you found using it and hear your ideas as we produce further resources for the rest of the year.
We hope that these resources continue to inspire you to get the most out of being part of the international Limmud community of learning, and we wish you a very happy Shavuot, a Chag Shavuot sameach!
