Chabad of Mequon’s Center for Jewish Life hosted its annual winter Shabbaton, featuring scholar in residence, Rabbi Manis Friedman, and special guest Chazan and performer, Sholom Jacobs. Over two hundred guests attended the annual Shabbaton, at the luxurious Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. The weekend retreat, organized by the Shluchim in Mequon welcomed families from Mequon and the surrounding communities, along with guests from as far away as Chicago.
It was a beautiful weekend of inspiring lectures, delicious catered meals, excellent programs for the children and true unity and achdus. The guests were particularly transformed and inspired by the beautiful words of engaging and gifted scholar, Rabbi Manis Friedman. The highlight of the weekend was the beautiful Melave Malka on Saturday night, featuring a grand concert by Sholom Jacobs, of Chabad of the 5 Towns. Recently returning from his Chanukah tour in Europe, Jacobs performed both traditional and contemporary melodies and nigunin joined by both his son Shmuel, as well as gifted accompanist and arranger Avraham Zamist.. What a treat to see the children and adults joining in and singing and dancing to the beautiful performance.
