Freshman Shabbaton Creates TABC Warmth Over Snow-Filled Weekend

The freshman shabbaton was a wonderful bonding experience for the freshmen, their senior mentors and members of the TABC faculty. The shabbaton began with a choice of paintball or a combination of bowling and laser tag. The group then went to the Hudson Valley Resort and Spa for Shabbat. There was beautiful davening and learning throughout Shabbat, including an uplifting tisch run by rabbis Yoni and Rafi Mandelstam. The senior mentors ran many programs that helped bring the freshman grade even closer together, including a “how well do you know your teacher” variation of The Newlywed Game, a Face Off competition (where each group is given a category and the contestants have to say something in that category within five seconds) and a ping pong tournament. It was a spiritually uplifting and socially unifying experience for everyone involved.
