8:00pm – 11:00pm ET

Update as of November 3rd: We are delighted that so many of you will be joining us! If the Zoom room is full by the time you arrive, please note that we will also be livestreaming the event on our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you there!

We know many of you are bracing to be obsessively refreshing Twitter or your favorite news sites on the evening of November 3, or maybe just hiding under the bed.

Here’s a better option: Join us for a virtual Tikkun Leil Election on Tuesday, November 3, from 8:00-11:00pm ET. Hundreds of you have already registered…sign up now!

What it is

Modeled on the Tikkun Leil Shavuot, where Jews stay up all night studying Torah on Erev Shavuot, this event will offer community, inspiration, and spiritual nourishment. We likely won’t have clear election results on the night of November 3, but we can gather to support each other as we begin to see the emerging picture.

From 8:00 to 11:00pm ET, we’ll be hosting a space for short Torah study opportunities, musical performances, meditation moments, poetry readings, and more. Presenters will include artists, musicians, rabbis, cantors, and other performers who give us hope, strength, and moral clarity in difficult moments.
