Reflect and Recharge: A Jewish Women’s Retreat


March 29–31, 2024

Reflect and Recharge: A Jewish Women’s Retreat is a transformational experience created to nourish, sustain, and strengthen your mind, body, and soul. You will join Jewish women of all ages and life experiences to build camaraderie through immersive programming tracks that create intentional space for self-awareness and personal growth. Attend with friends and family or walk through the imaginary retreat portal with an open mind to making new friends, networking, discovering something about yourself that you never knew, finding a mentor, or discovering an opportunity to mentor.

Limited to the first 50 women who register, our Reflect and Recharge: A Jewish Women’s Retreat is modeled after similar getaways for Jewish women in numerous locations around the US where women explore their unique Jewish journeys and connect deeply across differing spiritual backgrounds and levels of observance. Break free from your daily routine and responsibilities and invest in yourself by taking time to explore the joys of playing and learning and relaxing and growing in the spirit of empowered womanhood!

Our setting will be an award-winning Center along one of Phoenix’s beautiful mountain ranges. Amenities include:

  • climate-controlled cabins, each with an ensuite shower, commode, and sinks
  • twin size beds, 4 women to each cabin
  • classrooms for self-expressive art projects
  • meeting space for discussion groups delving into Jewish history and culture
  • nature trails for contemplative space
  • an outside stacked stone amphitheater and adjacent turf for morning yoga, sunset Kabbalat Shabbat (literally, “Welcoming Shabbat”) and Shabbat morning tefilla (prayer)
  • a traditional fire circle around which we will create those s’mores of childhood memory
  • a commercial kitchen from which 5 delicious Kosher-catered meals will be served
