On Erev Lag Baomer, the Yeshiva celebrated a beautiful lighting ceremony commemorating the passing of רבי שמעון בר יוחאי, the Sage who revealed many mystical, Kabbalistic secrets of the Torah. The ceremony was followed by our dear Rabbi Sinai’s inspiring words and a delicious barbeque.
The next morning, the Yeshiva travelled to Meron to join the hundreds of thousands of Jews worldwide visiting the holy kever of רבי שמעון בר יוחאי. The praying and dancing at Meron infused the boys with a mighty charge of spiritual energy! They then excitedly travelled to a beautiful campus in Netanya for a special Shabbaton.
On Friday, the boys visited the magnificent, kosher beach in Netanya where they enjoyed swimming, relaxing and volleyball. Shabbat in Netanya was a real מעין עולם הבא,
providing quality bonding time in a tranquil and informal setting. This brought a closer connection between the boys, their Rabbanim and families - כאיש אחד בלב אחד! Each Seudah was accompanied by Divrei Torah from some of the boys and uplifting singing. Rabbi Lowenstein’s special Friday night Oneg Shabbat included refreshments, a kumzits and an open panel discussion on crucial life topics.
