An Impactful Shabbat in Kew Gardens For Emet’s Stony Brook Students

Some consider it the most powerful 25 hours in kiruv – a powerful and inspiring Shabbaton. No matter how many classes a student attends or how many hours of learning he or she experiences, nothing is as life-changing as witnessing an entire Shabbos; especially if it’s spent with welcoming families, friends, and teachers, and features delicious food, an oneg, and uplifting learning and discussions.

On Shabbos Parshas Chayei Sarah, 22 Stony Brook University students discovered the beauty of Shabbos in Kew Gardens. They witnessed a Carlebach-style Kabalas Shabbos, an emotional Friday night program, a nearly three-hour Q&A session, chavrusa learning, a stimulating Shalosh Seudos...

I’m pointed up a graceful flight of shallow stairs, down a mini-street – seriously, there are green road signs – up a hill, and then I confirm at the door that this is indeed the D’Angelo Center. Then I wander around the cavernous space until I find a staircase to the fourth floor, room 416 B&C. As soon as I push open the door, I know I’m in the right place. For one, shawarma, onion rings, and middle-eastern style salads (heavy on the roasted eggplant and the pickled everything) are being set up on a few side tables. Experience has acquainted me with Emet’s rotating array of...
