February 2, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm
This year’s Shabbaton will be a day of prayer, study, and making delicious food together for adults in community. Our theme is the environment: What impact do we have on the world around us? What does our tradition teach us about how we should care for the Earth and its people?
Take a look at the schedule for the day below:
9:00 a.m.: Challah braiding** and veggie chili making for adults; Tot Shabbat for families with tots
9:30 a.m.: Tots will join in the challah braiding (with help from their parents!)
10:00 a.m.: Meditative prayer and learning
11:30 a.m.: Lunch
12:30 p.m.: Session 1 (one of these options)
  • A meditative walk
  • Text study on Jewish environmentalism
  • Part 1 of Tu B’shevat seder plate making*
1:30 p.m.: Break
1:45 p.m.: Session 2 (one of these options)
