Boys Shabbaton to Angelus Oaks
We arrived in Angelus Oaks (near Big Bear) Thursday night to an icy chill. The warmth of Shabbos had not yet taken effect – we had to compensate with a campfire.
We woke early on Thursday for skiing and snow tubing. We returned early in the afternoon to prepare for Shabbos. Pre-Shabbos potato kugel (a new taste to some of our Sephardic students) hit the spot, and we were ready for Shabbos. Moshe Storch led Kabbolas Shabbos – and the dancing. The Shabbos seudah was ruach-filled and was followed by pyramid and numbers games. The Oneg Shabbos – once again led by Moshe Storch – lasted late into the night. The highlight of the Shabbos was, without a doubt, the seudah shlishis. Moshe Storch and the rebbeim led the emotional singing as we watched the sun set behind the mountains.
Motzaei Shabbos started with laser tag in the woods and football. The melave malka entertainment – Mentalist Marc Salem – left everyone awestruck.
We left for home soon after breakfast and arrived safely at about 1:00 PM.
