Max Said, Wayne Said: A Boy And His 'Shadow' Reflect On Shabbat Together

In my role as a Jewish educator, I take many students on weekend retreats.  Such experiences are a wonderful opportunity for teens to live and learn together as we celebrate Shabbat, socialize, talk and play. At retreats, teens build relationships and their Jewish identities, and such experiences expand exponentially on what we accomplish within the walls of our synagogue. Living together in Jewish time and sharing the joy of Shabbat in a unique setting is an amazing springboard from which we can launch our kids into so many other significant opportunities.
