Winter Retreat 2020 Version- “Remembering” the Retreat

*Save the Date*

2020 version – “Remembering” the Retreat

December 19, 2020

6-8 pm Eastern


Dear Havurahniks,

We have decided to postpone the Winter Retreat this year due to current public health concerns.  We will be hosting a 2020 version online – “Remembering” the Retreat.  Join us for an online Havdalah and a retreat sampler while we are thinking of scenic Camp Ramah in western Massachusetts.

We will begin with Havdalah followed by a mix of mini-courses, our ever-popular talent show, and time to socialize and reconnect.

Please contact us at if you’d like to help, organize, or participate.

Note – this will be a no-fee gathering! Donations to support scholarships for next year’s NHC Winter Retreat are welcome.
