The Vision 2022 Retreat

September 9 – 11, 2016

Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Falls Village, CT

Home away from home. Isabella Freedman is a transformative place…
—Samuel Torjman Thomas, Scholar and Musician
 

It’s a place where, week after week, magic happens.

The Jewish world is changing rapidly, our campus is aging. This will be a unique retreat for Hazon leaders to come together in the early stages of Hazon’s Campaign for the Future, to start to understand the nature of the opportunities and challenges at Isabella Freedman. And to start envisioning what we might like it to look like and be by 2022, the end of the current shmita cycle in Jewish life.

Please email gina.schmeling@hazon.org with any questions or inspirations for the Hazon Vision 2022 Retreat. See you at Isabella Freedman!
