DC Minyan is heading to camp! We invite you to share the three-day Shavuot holiday weekend with friends, family, and the DC Minyan community. The 2018 Shavuot Retreat will take place from Friday evening, May 18th through Monday night, May 21st at Capital Camps & Retreat Center in beautiful Waynesboro, PA.

This year we are thrilled to welcome Rabbi Julia Andelman and Dr. Eitan Fishbane as our scholars-in-residence. Rabbi Andelman is director of community engagement at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS), where she oversees adult learning programs across North America, digital learning, continuing rabbinic education, and Prozdor. Julia previously served as the rabbi of Congregation Shaare Zedek in Manhattan, the director of adult education and programming at Park Avenue Synagogue, and the director of the iEngage Project at the Hartman Institute of North America. Dr. Fishbane is associate professor of Jewish Thought at JTS, where he teaches courses in the literature and history of Jewish mysticism, from medieval Kabbalah to modern Hasidism. The author or editor of six books, the latest of which will be published by Oxford University Press, Dr. Fishbane has devoted his research and writing primarily to the development of Kabbalah in medieval Spain.  

RETREAT PRICING

During the registration process, you will have the option to rank your preferred housing. To keep things as streamlined as possible, housing options are grouped into one of two tiers based on the similarities of the accommodations.  

Registration and housing requests for DC Minyan Members will continue to be a priority, with housing assigned first to all DC Minyan Members, and then, as space allows, to associate members, non-members, and guests.

AFTER YOUR REGISTRATION, YOU WILL BE CONTACTED BY THE SHAVUOT RETREAT COORDINATORS TO PAY YOUR REGISTRATION FEES FOR THE RETREAT.
