Chabad of Port Washington’s teen club joined thousands of teens from around the world to celebrate Jewish unity, heritage, and pride at the 11th annual CTeen International Shabbaton.
The convention, which drew in over 2600 participants, was the most electrifying and meaningful event to date. From world-class guest speakers to a life-changing closing ceremony with a surprise guest appearance by Adam Neumann, founder of WeWork, CTeen left the teens exhilarated and ready to share their Jewish pride with the world.
The inspirational weekend included a traditional Shabbat experience in the heart of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, meaningful hands-on workshops and lectures about Judaism, and the ever popular Times Square takeover, featuring world-renowned Jewish popstar, Yaakov Shwekey.
With over five-hundred chapters in twenty-three countries, CTeen creates a nurturing environment where giving to others encourages self-discovery. The network’s mission is to empower tomorrow’s next generation of leaders through Jewish education, and by providing a strong Jewish network across the globe.
Teens develop awareness and confidence while connecting with individuals sharing similar experiences and beliefs, becoming an integral part of a group that focuses on building core values and stresses positive character development. CTeen is open to Jewish teens regardless of affiliation.
