Beth El’s Beach Shabbaton: December 15-17, 2023. The Beth El Beach Shabbaton is one of our favorite Beth El traditions. Each year (minus the COVID interruptions), over 100 of us head to the North Carolina Coast for an extraordinary winter weekend together. It’s a wonderful respite at the beachside Trinity Center immersed in rest and community. Many of us look forward each year to this joyous time of playing, praying, studying, schmoozing, and noshing. Many others have yet to experience it. All Beth El-ians are welcome! This December, we will once again gather to enjoy our shtetl by the sea.
