We’re delighted to announce that the Pearlstone Center, Hazon, and the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center are launching a Jewish Intentional Communities Initiative. Together we share a vision that over the next 3-10 years, new Jewish intentional communities will bloom across the country—from urban kibbutzim to rural moshavim, suburban co-ops, and more—and that these dynamic and vibrant new Jewish communities will become inspiring catalysts in an ongoing renaissance in American Jewish life.

This year, the New York Ride & Retreat will be hosted at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center! If you’ve never been to Freedman, you’re in for a treat! Home to the Adamah program, the sprawling site hosts an organic farm with orchards, permaculture planting, bees, chickens, and ducks. The dining hall prepares amazing delicious, local, sustainable kosher food — using pickles, jams, and goat cheese that are made on site, as well as produce from the farm. The center hugs a beautiful lake you can walk around and borders on miles of hiking trails in the rugged Berkshire hills. Day one of the Ride will explore farms and countryside in northern Connecticut. Day two will take us on rail trails into New York City. On both days, we’ll have a range of different route length options, as well as options for non-riding family members to participate on crew or to cheer from the sidelines. Registration is currently $175 for adult riders, but prices increase on February 15th. Learn more about Adamah, hosted by Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center.
