It’s hard to say what the best part was of the Midwest Shabbaton, held April 19-21, 2013 at the Chabad Center of Jewish Life at the Univeristy of Illinois. Just spending Shabbat with over 300 fellow college students representing 10 universities at the largest Jewish gathering in the Midwest was pretty exceptional.
Then there was listening throughout the weekend to the Maccabeats, an a cappella phenomena who have had more than 10 million views on YouTube. Add to that world-renowned speaker and best-selling author, Rabbi Shais Taub, who spoke about hurt in relationships and understanding spirituality in our day-to-day lives. And needless to say, delectable and non-stop flowing food to make sure that not only soul but body was well cared for.
From the time the students arrived on Friday afternoon until they left after breakfast on Sunday, they participated in a full-packed program of learning, bonding and growing. Under the directorship of Rabbi Dovid and Goldie Tiechtel, who run the Chabad Center for Jewish Life serving the University of Illinois, the event was co-hosted by Illini AEPi, AEPhi, SAM, SDT and ZBT. This intercollegiate Shabbaton, the largest of its kind in the Midwest, is a partnership of the Midwest Chabad student centers and the Chabad on Campus International Foundation.
