The return of the Shabbaton Dinner – Mini Summer Shabbatons at Chabad

After a long break due to Covid precautions, Chabad of Charlotte will be opening our famed Friday night Shabbaton program with a gradual start. This will allow us to provide Social Programming with 3 small scale, limited group Shabbaton dinners limited to 25-30 people per each event. This series of Mini-Shabbatons will be held on the 3 Fridays during the three weeks of July 2,9, and 16.

These 3 weeks coincide with the 3 weeks of mourning. Although the three weeks are generally thought of as a time of sadness and reflection, yet on Shabbat we reflect with joy and hope for a better future, so we will bring extra joy into those Shabbats.

Each Shabbaton will begin with early Candle-lighting at 7:30 pm. Followed by Mincha and Kabbalat shabbat, and will feature a delicious gourmet Shabbat Dinner, prepared by Kosher Charlotte.

In order to follow the Covid safety guidelines,  tables will be set up apart from each other in the Social Hall at the Epstein Family Chabad Center of Jewish Life. One of the Chabad Rabbis and Rebbetzins will host each event.

These events will be first come first served. Registration will close once each of these event fills up. Please send your request for sign up to [email protected]. You will then be contacted to confirm availability to participate. The cost of these dinners will be $25 per person. If you don’t make it to join one of these three Shabbatons, have no fear, Chabad will have many more opportunities throughout the coming year!

Can we consider returning to just wine and cake and a little schnapps after Shabbat services?
