Shabbatonim & Events
We also have a “Rakezet Shabbat” when small groups of students go to spend Shabbat with their rakezet and her family. Getting to know your rakezet’s family and community, and being together with your group in a new place is one of the highlights of the year.
When we are not having a Shabbaton, we encourage students to go to family and friends for Shabbat. It is good to get off the campus for a change. When students don’t have a specific family they want to go to or want a ‘quiet Shabbat at home’, they can sleep in the dorm – it never closes! We can also help you to arrange Shabbat meals with local Har Nof families or staff. Midreshet Tehillah students are sought-after guests in the neighborhood! Our morning Eim Bayit, Rena Gershenfeld is always helpful and a great resource for finding chavayot (adventures) with delicious food!
We encourage you to spend Yom Tovim with family and friends, but we also have a staff option: to stay in the dorm and share your meals with a group of your fellow students together with staff members. Shavuot is run like a Shabbaton with a full program of meals, shiurim, and an optional walk to the Kotel for Shacharit at dawn followed by Kiddush in the Old City.
