The Annual Beach Shabbaton Experience,

With leadership from Andrea and Kevin Ginsberg

The Annual Beth El Shabbaton is one of our favorite traditions. Once a year, an eclectic multi-generational group of Bethelians convene for an extraordinary winter weekend together. We immerse ourselves in two days of rest and community. We play, pray, study, schmooze, snack, laugh and eat. Soon enough, we will safely gather again on the shores of Emerald Isle. Until then, help us keep the tradition going from the comfort of your own home. Complete this form to reserve your spot today!

Please provide everyone's names and ages, including your own.

Several events taking place on the weekend of January 22-23 are open to the public, such as Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat morning services. However, the majority of the programs will only be shared with those of you who register through this form. You will receive an email with zoom links and details for picking up your gift box -- which includes some program materials and some whimsy. The modest registration fee helps cover those costs. We ask $18 per adult and $9 per child, with a family cap of $54.

Of course, as always, if you have any difficulty with the fee, please reach out to for a no-questions-asked discount code. If you are able to contribute more than the suggested amount, please consider helping us keep the program accessible to everyone who wants to participate.
