Live Stream Havdalah


Havdalah—a beautiful service that features a fragrant spice box, a braided candle and a cup of wine—marks the transition from Shabbat to the new week.

At the Steve & Shari Sadek Family Camp Interlaken JCC, Havdalah is something extraordinary.

Those who have experienced it know what I’m talking about:

  • the crispness of the Northwoods night air
  • the feeling of the grass and gravel underneath you while sitting together lakeside
  • the sound of frogs intermingled with the soft strumming of the song leaders’ guitars
  • the glow of the Havdalah candle under the stars
  • the silence that is palpable as the candle is extinguished with a sizzle in the Kiddush cup
  • the entire camp family singing “Shavua Tov,” in unison, arm in arm, treating this solemn ceremony with the utmost reverence

Havdalah at Interlaken is special, no doubt about it.

Would you like to experience it?

We invite you to gather around your laptop, your iPad, or your SmartPhone for a sample of the Havdalah our campers—YOUR campers—are enjoying in Eagle River.

Please join us on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 at 9:30 pm Central Time on Facebook Live for a long-distance Havdalah at Camp. You provide the spices, the candle and the wine (or grape juice); we’ll provide the songs, blessings and inside access!
