The limmud segment of the Shabbaton on Saturday will be a session taught by Rabbi Jason Rubenstein:

"Zionism, Seder, Messiah, Wine: between ritual, history, and redemption"
Where does the story of the Seder end - and where are we in its arc? This shiur sketches out a non-messianic religious Zionism through an exploration of the Tanakh, the seder, and contemporary Jewish thought.

Lunch will be a dairy hybrid catered/potluck. Everyone will contribute to lunch - some by bringing home-cooked food, and others by ordering a dish through our caterer. We’ll all share the combined home/catered food for lunch. During the registration process, you’ll be able to pay for lunch or indicate that you'd like to participate in the potluck. If you choose potluck, someone will be in touch with you to coordinate whether you'd like to bring a salad, side or dessert.

If you have any questions during the registration process, please email Rabbi Ami Hersh at: ami@campramah.org

Family programming will be geared toward children up to the age of 12 – children older than that are most certainly welcome to join our other programs as well!

All components of the program will be hosted at Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan, located at 805 Columbus Ave on 100th Street.

Registration is now closed. Register and pay online here by Tuesday, March 5.

Kehilat Hadar is an independent, egalitarian community committed to spirited traditional prayer, study and social action. We meet for Shabbat morning services and some Friday nights and offer holiday services and educational programs throughout the year.  

Mechon Hadar is an educational institution that seeks to empower a generation of Jews to create and sustain vibrant, practicing, egalitarian communities of Torah learning, prayer, and service.

Ramah Day Camp in Nyack is a proud member of the international network of Ramah camps.  At Ramah, we provide children who are entering grades K-8 with the very best camping experience...in a setting of love, friendship, wonder and discovery, a setting where Judaism is integral to daily activities.
