About Us

The Traveling Chassidim.  Yes, it’s that simple!  We’re a group of Chassidic families who travel around the country.   We bring with us classic Chassidic warmth and liveliness, and together with the special aura of Shabbat, we form a deep connection with your community, resulting in a Shabbaton that is truly transformational.  

Shabbaton programs vary with each community.  Generally, we usher in the Shabbat with a stirring Carlebach davening enhanced with a special Chassidic flavor. This is followed by a community meal replete with lively zemirot and a Friday Night “Oneg” or “Tisch” with lots of singing and refreshments.  The program reaches its climax with the moving Havdalah service, kumzitz and spirited dancing, accompanied by live music. We get each participant onto their feet.

Unity.

Jewish unity reaches new heights as we connect and bond with your community.  From Shtreimel to knitted kippah or lack thereof, barriers fall away, arms are linked in inspirational song and spirited dance!  Often, our Shabbatons result in long-lasting bonds of friendship.

Joy.

The joy of Judaism comes alive!  The Shabbaton experience provides a model which portrays the potential joy and inspiration inherent in every Shabbat, in every prayer, (in every plate of chulent!) and in every Jewish experience.

Jewish Spirit.

Classic

Invigorate your community with some genuine Jewish spirit!  The combination of contemporary Jewish songs, traditional Yiddish classics and heartwarming Chassidic storytelling is captivating.  The excitement and energy we create lingers long after we’ve traveled home!
