The fourth annual Yeshiva Fellowship Shabbaton in Teaneck was once again a great success. After a few long hours of intensive football in Votee Park, the students left the frozen football fields tired and slumped over, as they went to their respective hosts to rejuvenate and prepare for Shabbos and the exciting weekend that lay before them.

The students met up again in Congregation Beth Abraham for Kabbalas Shabbos and a delicious Friday night seudah, which was enhanced with wonderful zemiros, divrei torah, and great food. Following dinner, students headed to the Beis Midrash for an hour of chavrusa learning. Fully satisfied, both physically and spiritually, everyone walked over to the Pfeiffer home to partake in an inspiring Shabbos Oneg for all MTA students and prospective students as well. Though there was no shortage of candy, snacks, and cake, the singing was definitely the most memorable part of the night. Everyone went back to their host’s house to spend the night and part of Shabbos day. The Yeshiva Fellowship Shabbaton resumed in the afternoon with a delicious Shalosh Seudos at the Burgs’ house. The combination of food and spirituality was present yet again. Much thanks to Rabbi Danto for coordinating the Shabbaton, as well as the Yeshiva Fellowship grade-Rebbeim who attended.
