Beit El Shabbaton
After spending Friday afternoon touring and praying in Shilo at the ancient site of the Mishkan, Talmidim spent an exhilarating Shabbat in Beit El. We toured the Yishuv, davened with the Yeshiva and in Rav Shlomo Aviner's shul, and met inspiring personalities and community members. We had the privilege of meeting with modern Beit El's founder: Israeli War Hero and former Deputy Minister of Housing, Yakov "Ketzeleh" Katz. Yishai Fleisher & Rav Baruch Gordon of Arutz Sheva led us on comprehensive walking tours, and we enjoyed a sicha from Mr. Joel Rebibo (Editor of Hamodia; formerly the editor of The International Jerusalem Post). It was a powerful Shabbos in the heart of Eretz Yisrael!
