A unique community-wide celebration and night of learning, a spiritual journey bringing together Jews with varied perspectives and affiliations. Stay for an hour—or stay until dawn! We will be led in study by teachers from our diverse Bay Area Jewish community. Join us in celebrating Shavuot!

We would love you to join us for family programming in the early evening, featuring sessions for ages 2-12.  We are also offering childcare and a sleeping room (for ages 2 and up) until the end of the Tikkun.  Parents must provide bedding, stay on-site and pre-register online.  

Volunteer Request

We are looking for volunteers for this year's Tikkun.  Whether you have volunteered in the past or are new to the Tikkun, there are so many opportunities, from food prep to greeting to clean up, at all times throughout the night.  For more information or to sign-up, please contact Lauren Greis at

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
