It’s a TikZoom Leil Shavuot

online Thursday, May 28th @ 7:30 – 11:30 pm!

Tikkun Leil Shavuot is the Jewish mystic tradition of late night Torah learning on the eve of Shavuot (the festival celebrating God’s giving and our receiving of the Torah).

We’ve joined forces with friends and colleagues serving universities and congregations from Knoxville to Greenville and Toronto to Oregon. We’ve put together an incredible group of scholars and rabbis to learn with in celebration of God, Torah, and Jewish Peoplehood.

There will be panel discussions, break-out sessions for you to pick and choose from, and time to schmooze with new and old friends. So get your Yom Tov candles ready, make a pot of coffee, put out some chocolate and cheesecake, and bring your yearning for learning.
Why do I have to REGISTER if it’s going to be virtual?!
It is very important for us to be able to communicate Zoom links with you, and so we’ll know how to divide our teachers for the break-out sessions.

We are connecting daily in Community. Please join us for Divre Torah, classes, podcasts, meditations, sermons, live chats. Folks without internet can listen by phone to most but not all of the services.

Let us know if you have any questions we can answer!

Heska Amuna Synagogue has served the Jewish community of Knoxville, Tennessee for over 100 years. We balance respect for tradition with openness to new ideas and practices.

Our congregation comes together as a family in the warmth of Shabbes, the spirituality of Jewish holy days, and the sharing of life’s important passages.

We are small enough to be personal, but large enough to meet the many needs of a diverse membership. We emphasize education and pride ourselves on the skills of our adult lay leadership and on the accomplishments of our youth.

We welcome all who want to be a part of our family.


  • Heska Amuna Synagogue is a sacred home, animated by Jewish tradition:
  • • Finding purpose through reflection (Cheshbon HaNefesh);
  • • Healing lives through service (Chesed); and
  • • Celebrating God with awe and joy (Yirat Shamayim).
