Each December, more than 100 Beth El members of all ages gather together on the North Carolina coast for a weekend of eating, praying, and schmoozing. New members are highly encouraged to attend, and the Shabbaton is a wonderful way to fully integrate into the community. As an incentive, new members receive a one-time 25% discount on registration fees.
The Shabbaton gets going on Friday and lasts until Sunday. The weekend includes services, meals, and beach walks, as well as nap time, a talent show, noshing, group study, singing, even more noshing, and an afternoon polar swim for Shabbatoners with poor decision-making skills. While every Shabbat is a time for rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, study and fun, the Shabbaton is a heightened level of Shabbat observance for many of us.
The retreat takes place at the beautiful Trinity Center near Emerald Isle, N.C. The registration fee covers all meals and lodging.
