This past weekend, Bnei Akiva of Toronto held its annual Hadracha Shabbaton in Camp Moshava Ennismore. The shabbaton was filled with many madrichim and roshim that are super excited for this upcoming year. It held amazing leadership workshops including how to successfully run snif. There were fantastic shiurim led by many amazing bogrim from around North America, as well as dvrei torahs from Hannah Aaron, Rebecca Sacks and Oryah Bensalmon, and Yakira Gasner.
Although the shabbaton was quite short, it was jam packed with incredible peulot, teaching and having fun throughout. Personally, the highlight for me on every shabbaton is always the slow shira at the end of shabbat and the havdallah filled with so much ruach and emotion. Everyone gets so into it and it’s so nice to hear everyone singing all together, as one big family. We want to thank everyone who came to the shabbaton and contributed to making it such an incredible Hadracha. It was truly an incredible shabbaton, and we can’t wait to see how this years amazing madrichim will change Bnei Akiva.
