One of the most distinctive customs of Shavuot is “Tikkun Leil Shavuot,” an evening-long study session. Join us as Washington Hebrew and Temple Emanuel reclaim this holiday tradition together with creative and traditional learning sessions, Havdalah, stories of (re)dedication to Judaism, and a dessert reception featuring our first-ever “Great Shavuot Cheesecake Bake-Off.”
What is a Cheesecake Bake-Off?
Are you a good baker? Do you have a cheesecake that people love? We invite you to bake your best cheesecake and bring it to Tikkun Leil Shavuot. Everyone will have a chance to sample each cheesecake and vote on their favorite, which will be crowned “The Big Cheese of Shavuot”!
When you RSVP for Tikkun Leil Shavuot, you can also sign-up to enter the competition. All attendees will receive copies of the recipes.
