Whether you are new to BJ or a long-time member, the Women’s Retreat creates an atmosphere of connection where all are embraced for who they are. Community is built throughout the weekend and sustains itself when we get back to NYC.

Women’s Retreat Reflections
Women's Retreat Circle 2009

My connection to Judaism was enhanced by the community of women who are so strong and dedicated to supporting the tradition. I feel fortunate to be part of this extraordinary community. – Sandy Cheiten

I met many new friends – smart, interesting women. The retreat, for me is a balance of cerebral and spiritual. The services and music are vehicles to connect me closer to my Jewishness. Being in a space of peace, beauty, and thought.  I am still feeling the effects of the experience. – Bonnie Harwayne

It was helpful to me that other people are questioning their beliefs and it actually provided me with a stronger connection knowing that I was not alone. It was wonderful to share so much in a more natural setting and not just as participants at services or meetings. – Susan Samuels
