Senior Shabbaton Review


    When the class of 2024 gathered for the Senior Shabbaton, they embarked on a weekend of profound experiences and grade-wide unity. Rabbi Yosef Furman aptly described the Shabbaton as “the climax of our high school experience,” offering a final opportunity to bond as a grade through the “holiness, beauty, and serenity of Shabbat.”

The weekend unfolded with a spirit of joy and camaraderie, with many memorable moments. Rabbi Furman recounted his most memorable experience, highlighting Noah Cohen’s spirited cry of “One More Time” during Adon Olam during slow shira. Moments like these became a symbol of the joy and connection that defined the 12th graders’ time together.

Equally profound was the experience shared by Jordan Pearlstone ‘24. Reflecting on the grade-wide tish, Jordan remarked, “whether playing the marshmallow game or expressing gratitude to one another during the tish, the Shabbaton proved to be both an extremely fun and meaningful experience.” 

Rabbi Soskil shared valuable advice about carrying the Shabbat BT experience into college. He hopes that the seniors are “inspired to seek out Jewish programming and Shabbat programming wherever they are.” Even for those who cannot find Jewish programming in college, Rabbi Soskil encourages BT students to “share our BT Shabbat(s) with other people” and to show them “the skills and tools to do it. 

 As we carry the warmth and memories forward, we are not just marking a weekend; we are embracing a sacred and special chapter in our high school journey. The senior Shabbaton will undoubtedly be a guiding light as we transition to college, a reminder to continue our lives with holiness and a meaningful connection to Judaism.
