These pages contain six sources which address the theme of ‘Offerings’ – exploring the relationship between intention and ritual, God and scripture, and the ultimate value of making offerings.

To make for a rich Tikkun Leyl Shavuot experience, Limmud Chavruta Team volunteers have compiled Chavruta study materials on the theme of 'Revelation'. You can study these sources in pairs or in groups anywhere - at home, in a community building, in a coffee shop, or even outdoors, if the weather is good enough! And do share this with others or use them with your community. There are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers, simply enjoy the learning, knowing that fellow Limmudniks around the world are learning the same texts in their communities.
