This is traditionally done by staying up and studying Torah

Or... staying up and playing video games with friends... Yeah, we missed the point.

Well, the night being talked about here is one during the holiday. Hence, it’s really one or the other; either you are religious and stay up the night of Shavuot, or you aren’t religious, and don’t give a hoot about Shavuot at all. You don’t stay up in honor of the night of Shavuot... and then play video games anyway. It’s one or the other.

They celebrate Shavuot all night...is incorrect?

I agree. Your sentence also makes sense in context.

Only Israelis speaking English say "we are celebrating all night".
