Share in Song

As a community, we will join in both joyful prayer and meditative song throughout the Shabbaton as a way of connecting to our spiritual selves and to each other.

Our Venue

Hilton Stamford

1 First Stamford Pl,

Stamford, CT 90001

Hadar is committed to ensuring that the workers in the places it patronizes are treated with dignity and respect.  We are thrilled to be back at the Stamford Hilton after a hiatus in response to a labor dispute there and our standing in solidarity with the workers there.  Hadar alumni were deeply involved in the process and the workers there won a significant contract this past year.  We are excited to support them and their hard-earned gains as we celebrate and gather as a community. Read about how Hadar’s alumni helped the Hilton Stamford’s workers unionize.

The hotel is reachable by Metro North train from New York City’s Grand Central and 125th St Stations, as well as by Amtrak train to Stamford.  Directions from major airports can be found on the hotel website.
