Meals at the Retreat

Every year we assess the feedback we receive from the community and try to adjust the retreat to meet our evolving needs. This year we are tweaking the timing of meals in an effort to bring the entire community together as much as possible while also accommodating families with young children. Please review this update before making your selections below.

I understand that Kehilat Hadar will do its best to ensure that no one will be turned away from the retreat for financial reasons.

A charitable receipt will be emailed to you shortly after Shavuot for any donation made.
