Past Shabbatons

October 25-26, 2019

Join us for the sixth annual Fall Shabbaton—a spirited, joyful gathering celebrating the best of Jewish life in Maine. Together we will experience a Shabbat weekend full of song, learning, meals, prayer, and outdoor exploration. We will be joined by scholar in residence Dr. Ruth Calderon, a former member of Knesset, and by Nefesh Mountain.

Listen to “Beneath the Open Sky” here

Nefesh Mountain is the place where bluegrass and American roots meet with Jewish heritage and tradition. Husband and wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff, pioneers of this new blend of American music, bring their unique knowledge and passion for these beautiful worlds to the fore with songs in English and Hebrew.
