Jewish Teens From Around The World Gather In Brooklyn For Shabbaton Event 

Jewish teens from around the world were in New York Friday, gathering, mingling and bonding for the even known as Chabad Shabbaton.

The CTeen event kicked off Friday morning in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The social club network brings together Jewish teens from 14 countries.

“For the past six years, hundreds of teens have forged new friendships while experiencing a meaningful Shabbat and enjoying the thrills of the Big Apple,” organizers say on the even website.

The event includes Manhattan shopping trips, visits to tourist hotspots, and stops at Jewish attractions in Brooklyn.

“This network gives them Jewish pride; gives them the ability to connect with teens from all over the world. It’s like a family; gives them dynamic Judaism to be a part of and be proud of,” said Rabbi Mendy Kotlarsky, executive vice president of CTeen International.

The CTeen International Chabbaton is open to all Jewish teens in the community regardless of affiliation.
