Just two weeks ago, talmidim in Rabbi Kerner’s shiur experienced a fun-filled and inspiring Shabbaton.  Talmidim met up on Friday afternoon for pre-Shabbos football and soccer games.  Afterwards, everyone went to their host homes to settle in for Shabbos.  Talmidim reunited that evening at shul to daven, then went to Rabbi Kerner’s house for a delicious dinner followed by a late Tisch with lots of z’miros.  Talmidim delivered meaningful Divrei Torah and heard from guest speaker Dr. Yitzchak Schechter.  Shabbos day was highlighted by davening and laining, all led by talmidim.  The ruach continued to build throughout Shabbos, leading up to a Carlebach-style Havdalah sung by Rabbi Kerner who was accompanied by his son-in-law on the guitar.  After Shabbos, everyone boarded buses and went to cheer on the MTA JV Basketball Lions as they took on the SAR Sting.  The Shabbaton was truly an amazing opportunity for achdus, as talmidim enjoyed bonding with one another and with Rabbi Kerner.
