Mission: To ignite jewish passion and inspire vibrant jewish life through our retreat center, farm and programs.
Programs: Jewish retreats, and other mission-driven conferences, workshops, meetings, and courses. Our goal is to provide an affordable, warm, and welcoming hospitality environment for non-profit jewish, faith-based, and secular organizations in order to help them accomplish their educational, religious and/or community-building goals. There is a fee for our services; we provide meals, lodging, meeting space and materials and programming help. We serve over 12,000 guests a year and are open 365 days a year.
the farm: judaism has its roots in an ancient agrarian society and many of the values and holidays evolved from that foundation. The farm is an invaluable teaching tool to demonstrate the connections between judaism and the environment, social and food justice, and calendar-related festivals. Children and students of all ages come to the farm to learn how to be responsible stewards of the earth and how the way they conduct their daily lives impacts our planet. We have 6,000 visitors to the farm each year.
passover: each year we hold a special passover program that runs for 10 days. Many of our guests are elderly and can no longer do all the cooking and cleaning the holiday requires. We provide the religious service, the seders, many classes, and family programming.
