TABC Masmidim Have Shabbaton in Passaic

Last Friday afternoon, 19 senior boys from Rabbi Jonathan Kessel’s Masmidim elective shiur headed to the Kessel home in Passaic. They welcomed Shabbat at the Ravona Shteibel where the kehilla was awed by Gavri Segal’s inspiring Kabbalat Shabbat. After davening the group enjoyed a delicious seuda at the Kessel home with uplifting zemirot and divrei Torah by Natanel Benloulou and Kivi Davis. The boys then went to a local beit midrash for an hour night seder, returning to the Kessel house for a tish led by Shua Schloss, which didn’t end until 11:00 p.m.! The next morning, the students rose early for davening at Kol Yeshurun, where the kehilla was once again impressed by the sincerity and seriousness of the TABC chevra. After a lavish kiddush, the Masmidim had a half hour morning seder before enjoying another delicious seuda at the Kessel home. Kovi Lightman, David London and Sariel Rotblat delivered special messages related to Chanukah and shared excitement for the upcoming year in Eretz Yisrael. After Mincha, led by gabbai Ari Mazin, the boys had an hour break to either learn or nap before gathering for seuda shlishit. Dovid Gopin closed out the memorable Shabbat with a cantorial rendition of Havdala. Special thanks to Rebbetzin Rachel Kessel for making this incredible Shabbos for the Masmidim!
