Retreat 2017

Members: Join us at the CDT Retreat, Friday-Sunday, June 2-4, 2017. Online registration is now open. Save $25 if you register by April 1.

Don’t miss out on this once in a life (every two-year) opportunity. Come hang out, laugh, daven, play ball, swim, and eat (excellent food) with Dorshei Tzedek members. You’ll even get a comfortable bed to sleep in (and “deluxe” accommodations promised for more “mature” members who request it). It’s the CDT event to be enjoyed by all – young and less young alike! Even teens are promised to have fun!!!

CDT holds a weekend retreat every two years. The retreat takes place at Camp Yavneh in New Hampshire, an easy drive from the Boston area, usually in June. We enjoy Shabbat under the trees and a wide choice of outdoor and indoor activities, including supervised activities for children. The lake front provides swimming and boating and the camp also has softball fields, tennis courts and other game facilities. The food is a highlight. All ages are welcome.

Some quotes by members about previous retreats:

“This was my first retreat and it was awesome! So many things to praise: the accommodations were great; the food was terrific (and lots of it); BUT, best of all was erev Shabbat services in the outdoor amphitheater and Shabbat morning services in the beit midrash with the amidah outside… Everyone was welcoming and friendly and such nachas to see our beautiful kids running, dancing, laughing and skipping on the spacious, wooded grounds. We had a wonderful time together. The talent show was a huge success. We are such a talented congregation, especially the kids! In two years, we’ll be together again, with many more at Camp Yavneh!”

“My wife and I liked letting our kids do whatever they wanted and hang out with anyone! We also enjoyed stand-up paddleboarding.”

“We brought our whole darn family (including two teenagers and one college student) and we all LOVED it! Now that we’re no longer onthe b’nei mitzvah circuit, it was especially wonderful to meet all the newer families with young children.”

“I left the retreat finally understanding what a real Shabbat feels like. 24 hours felt so much longer without the constant pull ofcomputers and phones and buying things… I can’t wait for the next one.”

“I got to eat fruit loops for breakfast and run and play outside without my parents. I also stayed up late.” (age 7)
