Join us for Shabbat Services: Friday at 6:00 pm, Saturday at 9:30 am

Shabbaton Retreat 2024

We're heading to the beautiful Brandeis-Bardin Institute (home of Camp Alonim) or a weekend of Shabbat peace, restoration, and community. We'll completely unplug as we sing, eat, learn, and play outside together in the idyllic setting of BBI- with something for everyone, adults, teens, and kids. Meet fellow CBI'ers and experience a true get-away that will leave you energized and inspired.

What to expect?

Friday - you'll pull into the gates of the Bardin Institute and feel the weight of the world leave your shoulders. You'll check in and get your cottage, and then join us for a Welcome Circle and musical Kabbalat Shabbat, followed by a big, camp-style Shabbat dinner with old and new friends. Expand your mind & heart with learning and unwind with activities for all ages.

Saturday - experience a balance of spiritual engagement with participatory Shabbat AM services followed by a long afternoon of activities (or just time for a nap or nature walk). It all culminates in a magical Havdalah Under the Stars, followed by a roaring bonfire.

Sunday - we'll enjoy a leisurely brunch buffet and morning activities and conclude with a special Closing Circle, before heading back to our lives, refreshed and renewed.

Prepare to take a deep breath, relax, and dive deep into Shabbat!

WHO: All CBI'ers are invited to participate. We welcome singles, couples, and families. For those with children, we'll offer some programs all together as a family, and some special opportunities just for our kids and teens. 

WHEN: May 3rd-5th, starts Friday at 4pm, ends Sunday at 11:30. 

WHERE: Brandeis-Bardin Institute: 1101 Peppertree Ln, Brandeis, CA 93064

WHY: Because the most powerful way to build community is by sharing Shabbat together without distractions. Come experience the magic of camp with the warmth of CBI.
