    Jewish teens gathered in New York City in an uplifting display of Jewish pride and unity; featuring a special Havdalah ceremony, meaningful inspiration and an exhilarating concert.

    CTeen is Chabad’s dedicated programming for Jewish youth, with chapters spanning the globe; and once a year, the organization puts on a grand Shabbaton in Brooklyn, New York. In all, two thousand five hundred teenagers from twenty-six nations are joining Alfie and his Manchester friends in making the trip to New York this weekend.

    For fourteen years, the Shabbaton has given teens a chance to cement their Jewish identity and reinforce their pride in being Jewish. The opportunity to spend a weekend in the Jewish neighborhood of Crown Heights is itself powerful, but it’s the programming that has stolen the show every year. Beginning this Friday night, a plethora of workshops and discussion groups aim to give teens the ability to find strength in their Jewish identity, no matter the circumstances.

    The Shabbaton is perhaps best known for its grand Havdalah ceremony in the center of Manhattan’s iconic Times Square. Singing “Shema Yisroel” with thousands of fellow teens from around the world is a moment that few will ever forget. And the symbolism of dancing at a visibly Jewish concert in the center of America’s limelight is not lost on the boys and girls.
