Southern Schmooze Shabbaton
Celebrating and Connecting Small Jewish Communities in the South
Southern Schmooze at Ramah Darom is an opportunity for participating Southeast synagogue communities to connect as individual congregations and celebrate Jewish life as a region. Please note while most of Ramah Darom’s signature Jewish experiential retreats are open to all, Southern Schmooze is for partnering synagogues and communities ONLY.
