We will be serving a catered Friday night dinner AND a Shabbat lunch.  You can reserve for either, or both, meals. Tables seat from 9 to 12 Shabbaton guests and a hard-working, all-volunteer Seating Committee works diligently to match tablemates. They will make every effort to satisfy seating requests, but cannot guarantee that every request will be fulfilled. To ensure you are able to sit with friends, we suggest that you purchase a whole table and invite friends to join you. We call this being a “Table Captain,” and you can click here to learn how it works
