Remember all the fun, friendship and delicious meals we had two years ago? We’re doing it again.

Arrive Friday afternoon, settle in, take a short walk on the boardwalk, say hello to the beach and the ocean. Enjoy Friday evening dinner at 6:00 PM, followed by Kabbalat Shabbat Services, led by our beloved Rabbi Julie Greenberg.

Wake up Saturday morning and come to the Penthouse for breakfast, followed by services with Rabbi Julie and cantorial candidate, Jessi Roemer. Savor lunch together. The afternoon includes a musical workshop with Jessi, along with other activities. Havdalah, dinner on your own, and then evening programming.

Sunrise on the beach, Sunday morning breakfast, and even more.
