Complete the Torah – On Shavuot Night

There is an old tradition to stay up all night and learn on first night Shavuot – the night is called Tikun Leyl, and there was a custom also to complete the learning of the Torah on that night

In Muswell Hill we may not stay up all night – but complete the Torah we will. And this is what we will do – I am inviting you to choose one of the 54 portions of the Torah, and give a 2 minute idea based on that very portion. We will that way cover all 54 – in under 2 hours….well that is if everyone keeps to time!

More details re timings will be out soon – although one thing is sure – it will take place on Shavuot night, Sat night June 8th. There will be refreshments served – of course including cheese cake.

Please do get involved, it is a great experience, and I am here to help you if you need. You can choose your Bar or Bat Mitzvah portion, that of one of your family, or just a portion you love. If you would like to find a portion you love – be in touch and I can match you up!

One of my favourite pages with ideas on Torah portions is from Bar Ilan University – here is the link. Scroll down for a list of all the portions with clickable links to essays on each one. The Chabad website has a list of portions and if you click through any of them you can find resources such a what is in each portions. Here is the link for that.

Enjoy – and simply be in touch with me with your chosen portion.

Warm regards to all – and looking forward to completing the Torah together
