Experience, study, dance, laugh and cry with LABA fellows, alum and collaborators while we spin LABA style at INTO THE NIGHT, downtown’s contemporary Tikkun Leil Shavuot. Check out the LABA offerings below and don’t miss the full program here.
Tikkun Leil Shavuot presented by Downtown Jewish Life. Experience an evening of Jewish culture, with over 25 events ranging from concerts to spoken word performances; from text study to an interfaith conversation, from yoga to song circles. Roam free throughout the 14th Street Y and neighboring organizations to discover unusual and unexpected conversations and performances. Artists, musicians, authors, dancers, scholars, yogis, chefs and rabbis will be performing, reading, discussing, and practicing throughout the Y as the nocturnal journey filled with culture, conversation, ritual, and cheesecake continues late into the evening. It will make you see night in a whole new light. INTO THE NIGHT takes place each year on Shavuot and is inspired by the Torah and other Jewish texts.
Wine, coffee, nosh and cheesecake will be provided for all our guests.
Free and open to all! May 30 // 7PM – 2AM
