TheRetreat 2016 

Dear Campers --

Registration is now open for our 70th annual TheRetreat, 
America's first and oldest weekend getwaway for Jewish men.

Click on the "Register Now!" button below to safely and easily sign up for TheRetreat using PayPal.

Our annual long weekend at TheRetreat up can be summed up in three words:   FUN SPIRIT * LEARNING.  

We are pleased to announce that our Scholar in Residence this year will be Rabbi Moshe Waldoks, the spiritual leader of Temple Beth Zion in Brookline. This nationally recognized rabbi and author is perhaps best known for The Big Book of Jewish Humor.

In advance of Rabbi Waldoks, on Thursday evening and Friday morning, our guest speaker will be Rabbi Ron Fish, who became spiritual leader of Temple Israel Sharon last July.

For more information about our speakers and other activities at TheRetreat of 2016, go to the NER-FJMC web site and watch your email for further announcements.

Of course, planning and running this event is a big undertaking and we are always looking for guys to help out with some of the many bite-sized tasks that are part of putting together a world class retreat every year.
Please consider volunteering a bit either before or during TheRetreat by contacting our retreat co-chairs.  For example, maybe you could...
  • come early and help welcome men as they arrive?
  • negotiate with the camp about the all-important meal and snack menus?
  • help organize one of the social activities, such as the golf outing, bicycling, softball, or campfire event?

So please click on the "Register Now!" button below to safely and easily sign up for TheRetreat using PayPal.

See you soon!
