Tikkun Leil Shabbat
Tikkun Leil Shabbat is a songful, soulful, Sabbath services featuring a teaching about a social justice issue, followed by a potluck vegetarian dinner. People come to Tikkun Leil Shabbat to find a welcoming, restful, songful community where together we glimpse redemption at dusk on Friday evenings, eat things with tofu and noodles in them, learn from each others' thoughts and experiences, and educate ourselves about the good work people are already doing to make our city a gentler and fairer place for everyone who lives here.
