Jewish Women’s Getaway

Finding Balance: Listening to our Authentic Selves

Bring your mother, sister, grandmother, best friend, or come solo and meet other amazing women looking to build their community of Jewish friends! Surrounded by the beauty of nature, we will explore how to find balance as we create, eat, drink, laugh, learn, sing and study together and learn to listen to our authentic selves. This women’s-only weekend will have everything you need to relax, rejuvenate your body, and fill your spirit. Share delicious meals and craft cocktails with friends. Connect to your Jewish spirituality through song, prayer, and reflection. Let your creativity run wild as you create works of art in the art studio. Indulge in relaxation with yoga, a spa night, massages, and more. Find out more, read about our Rabbis in residence and register at ramahdarom.org/jwg
