One of CTL’s featured and truly exciting programming in North America has been CTL Shabbatonim. The goal of the Shabbaton is to offer alumni a warm and memorable Shabbat experience where they broaden their spiritual horizons and raise their communal sensibilities. At such a shabbaton, an alumnus has the opportunity to:

  • Enjoy a wonderful Shabbat together with their chevra.
  • Hear about Jewish communal leadership first hand from renowned Rabbinic and community leaders
  • Network and establish relationships with active community Rabbis and lay leaders
  • Contribute to a community by delivering a d’var Torah or shiur, and raising the level of discussion in communal events
  • Depending on the Shabbat:

Reconnect over Shabbat with a Ra”m from the yeshiva

Spend Shabbat with the Rabbi of the community who is an alumnus of the yeshiva

Spend Shabbat with a scholar-in-residence who is an alumnus of the yeshiva in shabbatonim geared for professionals in different fields, e.g. Medical Ethics and Halacha.
