About the Event

You will receive our address upon registration.

Join us for a shared experience of Tikkun Leil Shavuot on the farm. This is open to everyone, and no experience or knowledge is necessary.

Shavuot is a holiday when we encounter revelation. There is a Jewish tradition of staying awake on the first night of the holiday. You are invited to join us for the opening ritual on Tuesday evening. You can either stay for a few hours on Tuesday evening and then go home, or choose to stay overnight until Wednesday morning.

Everyone is welcome. Folks age 17 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Yesod will not provide childcare at this event.

SCHEDULE

  • Tuesday 7pm: Set up your tent. (Optional. Setting up a tent is recommended if you plan to stay overnight and may want your own space to sleep or rest.)
  • Tuesday 8pm: Opening ritual and welcome. (Required for everybody who is attending any part of the event.)
  • Tuesday 9pm-midnight: Group activities include singing, guided meditative writing, guided movement. (Optional. You can also choose to do your own solo activity, or go home on your own timing.)
  • Wednesday midnight-6am: Open time. Watch the stars, nap in your tent, read by flashlight, or do another unfacilitated activity. (Optional. You can also choose to go home on your own timing.)
  • Wednesday 6am: Sunrise hallel followed by a light breakfast/snacks. Hallel are psalms which you can either listen to, or sing along if you know them. Tea and snacks will be provided, and you can also bring your own breakfast. (Optional. If you've been resting in your tent, you can choose to wake up and join the group for this closing time, or keep sleeping. At 7am, Yesod's staff will no longer be present, and overnight guests are welcome to linger on the land without staff support.)

ACCESSIBILITY

This event is outdoors, without access to an indoor space. We will be seated on folding chairs and picnic blankets around a campfire. You can bring your own seating if you have a chair that is better for you. The pathway to the program area is mowed grass on a slight incline. There is a composting toilet and a cold water handwashing station near the program area. Please email info@yesodfarm.org with any accessibility requests and questions.

COVID

Please stay home if you are not feeling well or if you have been exposed to someone with symptoms or who has tested positive for COVID in the past 10 days. This event is outdoors. We'll be seated in a circle, and individuals can choose how closed/distanced they sit. Masking will be optional unless anyone requests that the group masks, in which case everybody will meet that request.
