Shabbat with Hadar

Soulful Praying

Services at the Shabbaton will be personally ecstatic, communally meditative, and, most importantly, provide community members with a connection to the Divine.

Inspiring Learning

Our outstanding faculty and members of the Hadar community will tackle foundational texts from our shared tradition, and grapple with crucial questions about Judaism and our modern lives.

Rooted Community

Over the course of the Shabbaton, you will forge deep connections with fellow Hadar community members, rooted in substance and commitment to shared values.

What to Expect Over Shabbat

Whether you have spent Shabbat at an Alumni Conference or the First National Shabbaton, or if this is your first Shabbat experience with Hadar, we are so grateful that you will create this special Shabbat atmosphere with us.

Hadar adheres to traditional Shabbat observance standards, which most notably means that over Shabbat, our space will be free of musical instruments* and any electronic devices, including those used for communication. 


Singing enthusiastically
Laughing in chairs

*Musical instruments are welcome and encouraged for the Saturday night program.

You will leave the Shabbaton after forging deep connections with fellow community members; creating a relaxed, sacred atmosphere of learning; and sharing in energetic and moving tefillot with the larger Hadar community.

Let's Celebrate Shabbat Together!
