We're getting excited for our Second Annual Family Retreat-- and as we begin to immerse in the details, I want to get a sense of interest!

WHEN: March 24-26
WHERE: Greene Family Camp
WHAT: A PJ Library co-sponsored weekend of fun and relaxation away from it all. A time to connect with other families. A shabbat to laugh, eat, sing, play, nap, snack, walk, breathe, and eat s'mores.

Pricing is VERY reasonable and we also offer support from the Family Center Fund if that makes things easier. Most of the families who went last year have already committed again! Will you join them? Do you have any questions? Any ideas you'd love to see? Get in touch!

Love,
Shira
