Bnei Akiva

Bnei Akiva Midwest Regional Shabbaton

We are proud to announce that for the first time ever, the West Bloomfield community will host a Bnei Akiva Midwest Regional Shabbaton. We will be hosting the third annual Seniors’ Shabbaton on May 12-14. The Seniors’ Shabbaton is the last Midwest Shabbaton for 12th graders involved in Bnei Akiva. We are expecting about 65 total attendees from Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Toronto, and St. Louis. Due to the fact that there will be attendees from cities other than Detroit, we will be asking families to house attendees from Fridayafternoon until Sundaymorning. There is also an option to host a Shaliach family, as opposed to kids. As on past Shabbatonim in West Bloomfield, meals and transportation will be arranged by Bnei Akiva and host families should not be concerned about either. If you are interested in housing, please email with your name, number of people you can house, preferred gender, and phone number. The community will be invited to festive Tefilot over Shabbat and a joyous Kidush on Shabbat afternoon. The Shabbaton is made up of High School Seniors, which means that most of the participants will be Bnei Akiva leaders from other cities, who will make the Shabbaton all the more enjoyable for everyone. For any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Detroit Shaliach, Yonatan Edrei at 248-764-8401 or Mazkir Galil, Tal Ershler at 248-595-5176. We anticipate that more information will be released as the date approaches.

Mikvah Information
