Shabbaton Weekend

Already Occurred
Wilson Chapel, Andover Newton Theological School, 210 Herrick Road, Newton, MA ,
Newton, MA 02459
This event is kosher. This event is wheelchair accessible.

Please join us for a weekend of prayer, study, and socializing!

In Pirkei Avot, our tradition teaches us in the name of Ben Bag Bag, "Turn it, and turn it, for everything is in it. Reflect on it and grow old and gray with it. Don't turn from it, for nothing is better than it." The Sage Ben Bag Bag was speaking of the Torah, our Holy Scriptures, and his words are as true today as they were during the days of the Talmud when he said them. 

We invite you to join us for our 5773 Shabbaton.   We’ll trace a theme through the Tanach as we study Chumash/Torah, at Kabbalat Shabbat, Neviim (Prophets) at Shabbat Morning services and Ketuvim (Writings) on Shabbat Afternoon.  

We’ll enjoy a Shabbat dinner, a Kiddush lunch and Seudah Shlishit together.  We'll have time to socialize in the afternoon and light the first Chanukah candle on Saturday night after Mincha and Maariv and Havdallah.
