You may not be able to gather at your local synagogue, but thanks to the internet you can attend a Tikkun Leyl Shavuot anywhere in the country.
The Atlanta Rabbinical Association (ARA) will host a community-wide virtual Tikkun Leil Shavuot on Thursday, May 28th, beginning at 6 p.m., with multiple tracks and prayer services. Teachers will include: 2018 James Beard winner Michael Twitty, Rabbi Brad Artson of the American Jewish University, Dr. Judith Hauptman of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Professor Paul Wolpe of Emory University, and many Atlanta community rabbis and educators.
