Join us for Ohr Kodesh's First Ever Heretreat - February 1-3, 2019

That's right, the Mentsch Club is hosting a retreat-in-place. It's a staycation with your congregation! Come find your sacred balance in the Social Hall.

Join us for one, two or all three events throughout the weekend, then kick back at a Super Bowl Party as a reward for a productive weekend. (Party not included in the package - please arrange your own.)

Starting on Friday night February 1st, we kick off with a communal Shabbat Dinner [meat] for everyone not attending the Women's Retreat.

Open to all, with yummy food and great socializing!

6:15pm dinner in the Social Hall, services start at 5:10pm.


Please RSVP by Tuesday, January 29th. To RSVP and for more information click HERE

Dinner Cost:

  • Adults 13+: $18
  • Children 3+: $12
  • Under 3yrs: Free
  • $65 Family Max (2 Adults + children)


If you have any questions, or if you would like to arrange to pay less, please contact Phil or Gidon, phil [dot] pelzman [at] gmail [dot] com or gidonandre [at] gmail [dot] com.

On Shabbat Afternoon, join us for an informal Games Shabbat after kiddush. No RSVPs required, no cost. Just bring games and a snack/drink (drop off on Friday if you prefer).

On Sunday morning, February 3rd, we cap our "formal" program with a Pajama Pancake Playdate: from 8:30-11am, please join for a kid's playdate!  Bring your kids age 0-10 to enjoy pancakes and run around. Pajamas are optional (meant to facilitate actually getting small kids out of the house early on Sunday).

The cost is $5 per family to cover food.

Please RSVP by January 30th to Josh Stein (uwsnycusa3 [at] gmail [dot] com) or David Horowitz (nthusiast [at] gmail [dot] com) so we can make sure to have enough pancakes and coffee.
