Join Eshel for an inspirational weekend retreat in Brooklyn! The Shabbaton will bring together Orthodox and traditional LGBT Jews of all kinds from the New York area to an event aimed to create a community of support, learning, growth and leadership.

The shabbaton will include shabbes meals together, a farbrengen, shiurim, zmiros, sessions relevant to our lives as LGBT frum (or formerly frum) Jews. Meet Chaim Levin, our guest speaker, founder and director of LGBTQ Chabad, a group with over 100 members.  Hang out and get to know all the members of this growing community.

We will be gathering together in our own discreet space Friday night. Shabbes day we will join area shuls, and Saturday night we will have a community-wide gathering.

We are committed to making Sha’Brooklyn accessible to all; let us know if there is any reason you cannot attend. Write to us at info@esheloline.org.

Here’s another idea for a conveniently located place to stay:

The Eshel Center has reasonably priced rooms for 2-6 people.  Spots will fill up.
