Thursday, May 28 at 19:00h - 21:00h
Fraenkelufer 10-12, 10999 Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany
For hundreds of years, our ancestors have held Tikkunim, all-night study sessions, on Shavuot as a way of celebrating our collective inheritance to this text. We can't gather indoors this year, nor can large groups congregate in general. But the Talmud tells us of the importance of studying our texts not alone, but in Hevruta, in paired study, in order to penetrate our tradition and its secrets and its wisdom. Join us, this year, for a collective gathering of pairs. After services at Fraenkelufer, we will head to a pre-designated spot on the canal, where we will engage in Hevruta-study together and apart . You can either meet us at @[398538636886584:69:Fraenkelufer Synagogue] for Shavuot services at 7:00, or directly on the canal at 7:45. Each Hevruta pairing will receive two prepared Shavuot text study guides, filled with food for thought and lots of guiding questions. The Hevrutas are encouraged to bring along their own small picnic, and we'll supplement with a Vegan or Dairy packaged surprise. All Hevrutas will sit in the same general area of the canal while respecting current social distancing guidelines. And of course, we'll end the evening with a bit of song. *** PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ALL MUST FOLLOW HYGIENE GUIDELINES AND GOVERNMENT RECOMMENDATIONS IN ORDER TO ENSURE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF ALL PARTICIPANTS AT THIS EVENT! SERVICES AT FRAENKELUFER SYNAGOGUE HAVE LIMITED CAPACITY; PLEASE JOIN ON TIME, WEAR A MASK, DISINFECT YOUR HANDS, AND RESPECT PHYSICAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES. Please keep in mind that in order to minimize interaction with too many, consider this a gathering with YOUR HEVRUTA and ONLY YOUR HEVRUTA. Beyond this, we will all need to stay 2 meters apart from one another. Snacks and source sheets will be distributed while maintaining distance and safe hygiene protocol. If meeting in person is not something you prefer at this time, and you would like to meet your Hevruta online, super! Fill out the form and send us a PM and we will make sure an online hevruta is arranged! THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION!
