 Akiva Boys Shabbaton 
Thank you so much to all the people who made the Akiva Boys Shabbaton a huge success! About 16 boys in total ages 10 - 13 gathered together to share Shabbat experiences, learn, daven, eat and play, and to connect with one another. Several Akiva Alumni joined Motzai Shabbat for the gym and Melava Malka/Kumzitz Program. It was a great experience for Akiva students and their parents. Two Yeshiva boys- Eli and Sruly from Pacific Torah Institute came and added much Ruach to the weekend. It was such a pleasure getting to know them and connecting with them! Thank you so much to Mrs. Ana Kostousov for planning, organizing and coordinating the Shabbaton.
Thank you to the dedicated teachers and wonderful volunteers that helped to make it happen.
