Tikkun Leil Shavuot is a tradition where people stay awake studying Torah on the first night of Shavuot, a festival commemorating the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. It's a time of renewal, reflection, and celebration of the Torah.

We have prepared several resources for those wishing to engage in the teachings of Rabbi Sacks during this night of Jewish learning.
