2013 Hazon New York Ride

New York Ride & Retreat

Sep 4, 2015 - Sep 7, 2015

Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Falls Village, CT

Join the People of the Bike for a relaxing and meaningful Shabbat retreat at Hazon’s home at Isabella Freedman, and for two days of glorious cycling through the Berkshires and Hudson Valley into New York City.

It’s more than just a ride: Spend Shabbat hiking on the Mohawk Trail, canoeing on the lake, exploring the Adamah organic farm, and enjoying delicious kosher farm-to-table meals. Practice Judaism in a diverse community, with options including yoga, musical services, and traditional prayers.

Cyclists can then enjoy two days of fully-supported riding: Sunday’s route will explore the Connecticut and Massachusetts Berkshire hills and quaint towns, while Monday will be spent on the Putnam Trail in the Hudson Valley. Non-riders are welcome to join to help crew (a vital and energetic part of the weekend), or just come for Shabbat.

At the Hazon Ride and Retreat, we learned that living Jewishly is much more than lighting Shabbat candles and attending services. We breathed, ate, cycled and lived Jewish values together in one of the most amazing holiday weekends I have ever spent. Best birthday gift I ever gave my husband!
