Southern Schmooze Shabbaton
Celebrating and Connecting Small Jewish Communities in the South
February 3-5, 2023
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.

Our Southern Schmooze Shabbaton will provide opportunities for you to sing, eat, learn and play with members from your home congregation while also giving you the chance to connect with small Jewish congregations from around the Southeast. Come together to share in the joys and challenges of being a part of a growing and vibrant Southern Jewish Community!

Ramah Darom requires that all guests and visitors, including children of all ages, follow the vaccination requirements recommended by the Center for Disease Control’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
Note that not all states have the same requirements, but ALL vaccinations recommended by the ACIP are required at Ramah Darom Retreats.
Retreat registration forms will ask guests to certify that they, and all members of their immediate family attending a Retreat, meet all immunization requirements. We will not require guests to submit their medical records except in exceptional circumstances.
Please read our Covid-19 Prevention Protocols.
If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result in the days leading up to the retreat and are unable to attend, we are unfortunately not able to refund your payment due to upfront costs. Therefore, we highly recommend purchasing Trip Protection Insurance.
