Registration is now closed. Thank you for your interest in Center City Kehillah’s Shavuot: Community Night of Jewish Learning.

Join your Center City Kehillah for Shavuot, the holiday when we celebrate the giving of the Torah (and cheesecake!). We will meet, eat, learn and pray together as a community. 

A variety of classes will be offered through the night and into the morning, along with an array of davening styles, including an egalitarian and mechitza service. 

We will be unable to accommodate walk-ins. This program is intended for people ages 5 and older. Please register by Thursday, May 26 at noon. All attendees must submit individual registrations.
