Connecticut & Upstate Fall Shabbaton

Dear NCSYers and Parents,

We are so excited to see you this week at our Connecticut & Upstate Fall Shabbaton 2018 - featuring the greatest teens, advisors and NCSY staff from New England & Upstate New York! We have a fun and meaningful weekend planned, including new and old friends, delicious food, amazing guest speakers, thrilling Saturday night activity - and much more!

Especially in light of recent events, we are taking additional measures to ensure the safety and security of all participants. We are coordinating with the Stamford Police Department to ensure security at the shul throughout the event, and to increase patrols while we are walking home. All teens will only be allowed to walk to their hosts home at the conclusion of each night's program as a group with their advisors.

Please read the updated important information below and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
