What a magical weekend we were able to share with our family and friends at the K–5 Family Retreat. We’ve looked forward to this weekend ever since we had the opportunity to attend last year’s retreat and couldn’t imagine the experience being better.

From the moment we arrived, the chance to reconnect with old friends and create friendships with new members of our community made every moment special. The setting was beautiful and allowed us to unplug from the hustle and bustle of daily routines. The feeling of community and being a part of something bigger than ourselves was always with us.

The weekend was just the right combination of worship, fun, and community. We loved the spirited Maccabiah, evening Havdalah services, s’mores and sing-along, and the hilariously fun evening activities for the adults and children alike.

We left on Sunday already looking forward to next year and feeling so grateful to be part of this amazing group.
