250 excited Jewish teens from about 44 cities in North America gathered Friday in lower Manhattan as the annual National Cteen Shabbaton got underway.
Each participant received a VIP pass at registration and breakfast at Chabad of Wall Street, which was followed by tours to the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero and other sights.
Cteen’s signature Shabbaton sweatshirts and proud teen spirit were on display for all to see.
Speaking from Cteen Central in Merkos Suite 302 (Chabad House HQ) where reservations continue to pour in for the Motzei Shabbos Jewish Teen Yacht Event, Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, Chairman of Cteen International, expressed his excitement. “This will be an incredible Shabbos; one they will long remember.”
