Shabbaton on the Slopes &

2019: A Rabbi Retirement Odyssey

We are excited to come together, at Alyeska Resort, during the weekend of Jan. 18th - 20th, to share time together with our CBS community, to learn from our Rabbis & invited guests, and to celebrate Rabbi Michael Oblath.

For teens in grades 8 - 12...

This group will celebrate Shabbat together. Drop off time will be between 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Friday (accommodations can be made for those needing to come later). Our teens will enjoy fun and meaningful programming throughout the weekend and they will take part in the celebration for Rabbi Oblath on Saturday night. Pick up will be at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, after a morning of engaging teen track sessions. 2 dinners, 2 breakfast and 2 lunches are included in the price. Teens stay 4 to a room.

For adults...

Programming for Adults will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, followed by a special Havdallah and then our celebration for Rabbi Oblath. Programs will continue on Sunday with sessions running until 2:00 p.m.  1 dinner, 1 breakfast and 1 lunch are included in the price. Single Occupancy or Double Occupancy pricing is available.

For those adults that don't wish to stay at the hotel but want to join in the fun, the Commuter option is for you.

We are also offering to book rooms for any who might want to spend Friday night at Alyeska as well. While programming and meals will be on your own, all who book a room on Friday will be invited to join the group for our Shabbat Evening Service.

For adults who wish to bring younger kids...

No worries, there is an option in the registration screen to add children not age eligible for our teen programming. This will ensure they are able to participate in programs and meals.

For those who can only attend the Retirement Celebration...

We have you covered! You will see that option available on the registration screen.

REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONSBefore you hit the Registration Link below, please take note:

1) We need information on each participant. You will sign yourself up first and then "add guests" to include the information of all who are in your party, regardless of age. In the "Fee" section, you will hit the fee that applies to the individual (there will be a "Fee" section for each person in your party).

2) If you are a parent of a teen and you ARE NOT attending, you should still sign yourself up first (as we need your contact information). There will be a box in the "Fee" section that applies to you, click that. After you add a guest, you will be able to click the "Teen Shabbaton Registration" fee for your child. Each teen needs to be added as a separate guest.

3) After you are finished adding guests, there are "ADD ON" options. You can opt to take part in our gift for Rabbi Oblath, or to reserve a room (beyond any rooms that are part of the FEE package you pick). You can also skip the "ADD ON" section if you don't wish to take part in any of the choices offered.

4) If you take part in the gift for Rabbi Oblath, please note that a participation link will be sent to you within 24 hours of receiving your completed registration.
