Passover Retreat

There’s nothing like celebrating the holiday of Pesach at Ramah Darom. Families from all over the globe gather together with us to create a marvelous extended family and community. Our all-inclusive holiday has everything you need to celebrate a meaningful, fun and relaxing vacation with family and friends – new and old.

Enjoy a rare opportunity to spend time learning and exploring Jewish life, culture, texts and history with a diverse mix of distinguished scholars, leaders, and thinkers. Our communal Seders are led by engaging, scholarly rabbinical leaders. You may also choose to enjoy your own semiprivate Seder with space reserved just for your group. Throughout the week you can choose from hundreds of programs, trips, activities, and lectures, including everything from woodworking and fly fishing to waterfall hikes and campfires! Year after year, our Passover family comes back for this extraordinary, unique family retreat.
