S'mores & Study spring retreat is for Jewish women of all ages, seated in the scenic Berkshire Hills in NY. Join us for three days of engaging, thought-provoking Torah learning that gets right to the heart and soul of your crazy busy life. Leave behind the maddening distractions of life in 2019, and from the minute you arrive until the minute you go home, we’ll be exploring Jewish thinking, texts and traditions to find out: What do Jews believe? How do you get past the layers of superficiality and feed your hungry soul? Where do you start, to lead your life with purpose?
- Because learning happens in different ways for different people, we’ve also got an art studio, an acupressure workshop, handwriting analysis with a graphologist, a fitness class, and all the hiking, boating and sun rays you can soak up in 3 days!
Berkshire Hills is 640 gorgeous pristine acres on a private lake. Relax with a book in the gazebo, go on a meandering walk through the lush green fields, finish a deep conversation with new friends on a boat ride, get creative in the art studio, or hike some of the property's stunning trails.
Sleeping rooms are in cabins, private and double occupancy.
The food is super-healthy, delicious and kosher, prepared fresh daily just for us. If you have special dietary needs, please make sure to let us know when you sign up and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
