This year the Shavuot holiday will be celebrated on the evening of 3 June (6 Sivan on the Jewish calendar).  Shavuot evening marks a special tradition, known as 'Tikun Leil Shavuot', which includes festive all-night Torah study sessions to celebrate the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people.

This year, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality invites you to take part in the numerous all-night Tikuns taking place throughout the city. The events will be hosted by Jewish organizations, communities and synagogues across a wide spectrum: Secular, Conservative, Reform and Modern Orthodox.
