Kabbalistic Tikkun Leil Shavuot & Prayers

This link opens up a 186 page long PDF file containing sections of learning and prayer for the Tikkun Leil Shavuot in Hebrew, English and transliterated English. In keeping with the custom of engaging in all-night Torah study, the Arizal, a leading Kabbalist of the 16th century, arranged a special service for the evening of Shavuot, called the Tikkun Leil Shavuot (“Rectification for Shavuot Night”), which consists of excerpts from the beginning and end of each of the 24 books of Tanakh (including the reading in full of several key sections such as the account of the days of creation, The Exodus, the giving of the Ten Commandments and the Shema), readings from the 63 books of Mishnah, followed by the reading of Sefer Yetzirah, the 613 commandments as enumerated by Maimonides, and excerpts from the Zohar, with opening and concluding prayers. The whole reading is divided into thirteen parts. This document contains part of these original resources, as well as some of the prayers, Torah readings and Kiddush for this holiday. This resource, intended for those with significant background in Jewish textual learning, was compiled by Kabbalah4All.coman online Jewish community with emphasis on the teachings and practices of the Kabbalah (Mystical Judaism).
