Given Auditorium, Bixler Art and Music Center

Join community members from across the state for the Center for Small Town Jewish Life’s sixth annual Fall Shabbaton—a spirited, joyful gathering celebrating the best of Jewish life in Maine. The weekend will be full of song, learning, meals, prayer, children’s activities, and outdoor exploration suitable for all ages. Talmudic scholar Ruth Calderon, a former member of the Israeli parliament, will offer insightful study sessions and conversation. Featured artist Nefesh Mountain, a bluegrass and American roots band that taps into Jewish tradition, will make music throughout the weekend, culminating in a concert Saturday, Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. in Colby’s Given Auditorium. Concert tickets are included with Shabbaton registration, and will also be available at the door for $18. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. 
Register for just $18 for the entire weekend, or come to the concert only. Students attend at no charge.
