Winter Retreat

December 15-17, 2017

How do we ensure we fill our days with meaning and purpose? Our tradition tells us, “Eilu Devarim,” “These are the ways.” Come and enjoy a full Shabbat on retreat with your fellow members and clergy, as we explore these questions and one possible answer provided by a central Jewish text. Highlights will include study sessions with Central clergy in an intimate setting, spirited worship, and service opportunities. Registration opens early October.

Registration coming soon…
