The Feast of Shavuot, also known as the feast of Matan Torah is always a cause of nationwide celebration and a variety of events and fun spring festivals all around Jerusalem. It is also one of the three Jewish Holidays in which it is historically accustomed to ascend to the Holy City.

Shavuot is the best time to go outside, to enjoy the lovely weather and participate in fun activities for the whole family, whether it’s the traditional celebration at Ramat Rachel, the Abu Gosh Musical Festival, or just a tour of the city.

What is Tikkun Leil Shavuot?

Tradition tells us that Shavuot is the day on which the Jews received the Torah on Mount Sinai. The legend says that the nation of Israel slept in on this important day, and therefore, we must stay up all night learning Torah as a “Tikkun,” a reparation. This custom is called “Tikkun Leil Shavuot.” To find out about different “Tikkun” locations, click here (Hebrew).
