The Idea School Has a Shabbaton-in-a-Day

Even without an overnight program, The Idea School hosted its first ever in-school shabbaton in-a-day program! The day began with kiddush and cookies, and a student led Dvar Torah on Parshat Toldot. Next was an Advisory discussion about the meaning of Shabbat along with a fun parsha quiz. The students then participated in a chesed activity where they packed Shabbat-in-a-bag for those in the hospital and spoke about the mitzvah of bikur cholim. Shabbat lunch consisted of a special meal of cholent and potato kugel followed by a kumzitz, and a monthly birthday celebration where shout-outs were given to each and every student. After Shabbat, the students had a blast playing video games in a mobile gaming truck that came to the school, because no shabbaton would be complete without a Motzei Shabbat activity.
