Ahhhh it’s that time of the year again – the weather is getting a tiny bit less humid, the mosquitoes are starting to let up, and the bottle-collecting lady at Bar-Ilan is picking up her pace. The new school year is about to start and with it, our annual ESCape-Agudat HaStudentim Welcome to Bar-Ilan Shabbaton!

This shabbaton is both a great chance for second and third (and fourth and fifth) year students to reunite, as well as an introduction to our community for the new incoming students.

We have LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE, as the Shabbaton meals will take place in the Kollel building due to renovations being done in the Aguda. First come, first serve.


Friday night

Tefilla followed by a communal meal for the whole community, oneg Shabbat and a short shiur Torah.


Shacharit (followed by Lishkat HaRav’s kiddush in the same building)

Lunch – In order to allow the incoming students to mingle on a smaller and more intimate scale, we’ll be organizing their lunch meal by students in the community who are interested in hosting. We will not be setting up second and third year students – we expect you to feel familiar enough with the community to find the most comfortable meal for yourselves. We will publish a list of the students hosting meals for first-years, we encourage you to join those meals and get to know our new students (of course with the host’s permission).


Seuda Shlishit – we’ll regroup for a light meal, divrei Torah and singing.

Ma’ariv and havdalah-

Cost: 35 shekel a student.
