Guaranteed to be a life changing evening and one of the most powerful evenings in our Jewish lives, Shavuot is a holiday of studying and celebrating the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai. Come celebrate with Rabbi Barclay this transcendent event as we utilize Rabbi Barclay’s translation of the ancient text “Tikkun Leil Shavuot” as a guide into the deep awareness of the magnificence of both the Written and Oral Torah. Traditionally, this evening of study and discussion goes all the way until the dawn; and we will once again immerse ourselves in this tradition (or at least anyone who can make it all the way through the night!). Bring a dairy dessert to share as it is the tradition to enjoy dairy and desserts throughout the night (and for those who like caffeine we get to enjoy Rabbi Barclay’s famous Cuban Coffee…which makes a cup of espresso seem light!).
Come have brunch, and build the structure of the community Succah at Rabbi Barclay’s home. We will be bringing out the wood and building the basic framework (the entire succah with fronds cannot be built until after Yom Kippur), and sharing light food, coffee, and laughs…
If you have your own electric drill, please bring it to make things go quicker; but most importantly, please come celebrate the preparation for this happiest of holidays as we start building the Succah!
The holiday of Sukkot is the beginning of the process, so come learn the methods, techniques, and practices to keep our spirituality moving in the direction of our soul’s highest purposes as we study together under the shade of the Succah.

Learn how to manifest the deepest dreams of your soul into physical reality through a more full understanding of this powerful holiday…the only holiday in which we are commanded by God to be happy! We will study ancient texts together and learn how our Sages used Sukkot to create daily miracles in their lives.
This class is only open to those over the age of 21. As always, cigars will be provided by the TNS Men’s Club, but for this one event, we ask people to consider bringing fine spirits to share as we enjoy the studying under the shade of the Succah. As always, this class is open to everyone: make and female, smoker and non smoker (there is a non-smoking section in the Succah).
