Mishkan Chicago
The retreat will be held at Camp Henry Horner in Ingleside, IL

First and/or Second Seder: BOTH! What if telling the story of redemption from slavery to liberation actually meant getting out? Getting out of the city, out of your usual seder experience, out of your daily habits and landscape... and into the woods, to experience liberation in your body, for enough time to really let it sink in. This is an everybody-friendly retreat for singles, couples, and families, with camp accommodations, delicious food, lots of unstructured time, both of our rabbis, two seders (one traditional, one adventure), and an amazing schedule planned to allow the work of Passover to really work on you. Intrigued? Join us!
