JEP Ohr Somayach of Toronto is happy to provide the Jewish students of Ontario with a wide selection of shabbatons throughout the year in Thornhill, Toronto and Waterloo.  Every year we have a series of shabbatons  featuring exciting, dynamic speakers, often from Israel. 
Additionally, JEP organizes "Yeshiva Shabbatons" which cater to young men who would like a yeshiva experience amidst their daily lives.  These Shabbosim present shiurim and mussar discourses as are commonly found in the yeshiva atmosphere.  
Of course, JEP also runs all women's shabbatons.  These offer women an opportunity to spend an entire shabbos with other women like themselves.  Usually, these shabbatons center around conventional themes.  Occasionally, specifically women's themes will be featured.


Coming soon (really)
