Tikkun Leil Election
November 3, 2020 | 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
We know many of you are bracing to be obsessively refreshing Twitter or your favorite news sites on the evening of November 3, or maybe just hiding under the bed.
Here’s a better option: Join us for a Tikkun Leil Election on Tuesday, November 3, 8:00 – 11:00 PM.
Modeled on the Tikkun Leil Shavuot, where Jews stay up all night studying Torah on Erev Shavuot, this event will offer community, inspiration, and spiritual nourishment. We likely won’t have clear election results on the night of November 3, but we can gather to support each other as we begin to see the emerging picture.
From 8:00 to 11:00 PM, we’ll be hosting a space for short Torah study opportunities, musical performances, meditation moments, poetry readings, and more. Presenters will include artists, musicians, rabbis, cantors, and other performers who give us hope, strength, and moral clarity in difficult moments, including Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg of the National Council of Jewish Women, Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie of Lab/Shul, and poet Joy Ladin.
