E

very year, B'nei Akiva
confers a new name on
its ninth grade
members worldwide. This
name always commemorates
a particular place, person,or
concept in connection with
Israel and the Jewish people.
This year's ninth grade, or
"shevet," has been named
Shevet HaTzvi, in memory of
Rabbi Tzvi Yehudah
HaKohein Kook, leader of
religious Zionism in our
times.
In honor of this year's ninth
grade becoming a full-fledged
shevet of B'nei Akiva, the
local shevet planned a
regional Shabbaton for more
than 100 ninth graders.
For the past six months,
ninth grade HaTzvi members
of B'nei Akiva of Detroit have
worked continuously in
preparation for Detroit's
Shevet Shabbaton. They stag-
ed a five-hour learn-a-thon,
sold bouquets of roses, Enter-
tainment books, and held
bake sales to raise funds for
the convention, and then
focused their efforts on the ac-
tual planning of the conven-
tion itself. Educational pro-
gramming, social activities,
housing and even the menu
were debated and discussed at
weekly meetings by the ninth
grade group, under the super-
vision of Annette and Benny
Appel, local shlichim.
Finally, the weekend of
Feb. 24 arrived. "We'd been
working so hard that I
couldn't believe the Shab-
baton was actually here,"
noted Judith Schlussel, hous-
ing chairman. More than 100
members from Chicago,
Cleveland, Toronto and St.
Louis arrived at Young Israel
of Greenfield for the official
opening of the first annual
HaTzvi Shabbaton.
Following Shachrit services
at Young Israel and a buffet
breakfast, the group left for
the Compuware Ice Arena for
an afternoon of ice skating.
"We were all pretty tired
from the long trip in, but the
skating event gave us a
chance to meet new people
from the other cities?" said
Miriam Davis of St. Louis.
After lunch, the Shabbaton
participants were shuttled to
their hosts' homes to prepare
for Shabbat. More than 30

representative for B'nei
Akiva's Detroit affiliate.

local families had opened
their homes to house HaTzvi
members.
Late Shabbat afternoon, all
of the members returned to
Young Israel foi Kabbalat
Shabbat. Stuart Millstein, a
member from Chicago, led
services for the whole con-
gregation. After services, din-
ner was served, accompanied
by singing, dancing and a
D'var Torah given by Daniel
Yolkut of Detroit. The even-
ing concluded with an Oneg
Shabbat in which par-
ticipants were challenged
with a number of mind-
benders, and social mixers
that had been prepared by a
B'nei Akiva parent, Mrs.
Terri Dworkin. "By the time
the 'getting to know you' oneg
was over, I must have spoken
to almost all the kids at the
Shabbaton!" remarked Rob-
bie Diamond of Toronto.
On Shabbat morning,
Shachrit services were led by
Jonathan Prostak, of
Detroit's B'nei Akiva. B'nei
Akiva members also read the
Torah for the congregation,
including Eli Lopin, a former
Detroiter now of Seattle,
Yolkut and Ben Beres, of
Detroit. The Haftorah was
chanted by Jamie Pearlberg,
and Mussaf was led by Tal
Sharon, both members of
Detroit's HaTzvi.
After services, Prof. Murray
Rosman, visiting professor of
Jewish history at the Univer-
sity of Michigan and
Midrasha College of Jewish
Studies, presented a lecture
to the shevet on "Anti-
Semitism: From Haman to
Houston." Following lunch,
Judith Schlussel gave a D'var
Tbrah describing the name of
"HaTzvi."
Shabbat activities con-
tinued with a discussion ses-
sion on the variety of views of
the Messianic era held by dif-
ferent Jews. Each group
created and performed in a
skit illustrating a different
outlook of the Messiah and
the End of Days. "The skits
were interesting, and some
were pretty funny," said Amy
Greenberg of Thronto. "But it
was interesting to learn how
different Jews view the sub-
ject in different ways?'
The final Shabbat meal was
filled with special ruach
(spirit), with all the par-
ticipants joining in for
Hebrew tunes to mark the
end of Shabbat. The entire
Young Israel congregation
was invited to partake in the
Seudah Shlishit meal with
the B'nei Akiva members,
and Appel described the goals
