Apples & Honey Rosh Hashanah Retreat
September 16th – 19th
Welcome the sweetness of the new year with apples from local orchards and honey from the bees that live, thrive, and hive on our land. This Rosh Hashanah, treat yourself to the transformative experience of welcoming in the new year with lively prayer services (your choice of a Traditional Mechitzah Minyan or Experiential Egalitarian Prayer Service), immersion in a relaxing wooded venue, community celebration, and fabulous farm-to-table feasting. Children’s Program, engaging lectures and discussions, yoga, meditation, and hikes all included.
100% Yom Kippur
September 25th – 27th
The setting is idyllic, the pre-fast meal and the break-fast food is sumptuous (much of it produced at our own Adamah farm and on-site dairy!), and the cost—including all accommodations, food, and services—is on par or even less than tickets to many crowded city synagogues.? We are offering two prayer services: your choice of a Traditional Mechitzah Minyan or Experiential Egalitarian Prayer Service. A children’s Program, engaging lectures and discussions, yoga, meditation, and hikes are all included.Learn More
