The Erev Learning
On the first night of Shavuot (this year, Tuesday evening, May 30), Jews throughout the world observe the centuries-old custom of conducting an all-night gathering dedicated to Torah learning and preparation for receiving the Torah anew the next morning. At Adas, learners of all ages will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and learn Torah. We will have multiple learning sessions to choose from with our dynamic clergy; see the full learning schedule above.

An Outdoor Shavuot Late Night Experience at Adas
This Shavuot, we’ll create a holy moment of capturing Torah in both thought and action, transforming our outdoor plaza into the bottom of the mountain—our eyes, ears, and hearts turned upward—open to rediscovering the Torah that hovers above us and all around us.
