Renewal and Resilience in Jewish Tradition
CBST Retreat 2019 at Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center 
May 3-5, 2019
 for CBST Members in Good Standing


“Let the earth dance...let the fields burst with plenty, and all the trees of the forest shout for joy.” (Psalm 96)

In times of darkness or uncertainty, we all need to practice caring for ourselves and each other. What are uniquely Jewish practices that renew our spirits and build resilience for what’s ahead? Some of us revel in hitbodedut- expansive quiet and space; some of us thrive in spiritual connection to the natural world, including the glorious animals with whom we share the earth; some of us find our healing in song, especially the ancient poetry of the Psalms. At the CBST congregational retreat this year, we will discover all of this and more at our “home away from home” in the glorious Connecticut Berkshires! Be guided by our clergy and scholars-in-residence in t’filah (prayer) and sicha (conversation), connect with your CBST kahal (community) in the woods and have a chance to really recite the blessing of seeing the stars in the sky for outdoor Havdalah!


Early Bird Registration is open through February 28!  If you wish to make your payment in installments, contact Ruth at 212-929-9498 x 815. 


*Through generous contributions, limited subsidies are available for Limmud students and Aleinu CBST Members in good standing attending the Retreat. If you are eligible and would like to apply, email programs@cbst.org with the subject line “CBST Retreat” and include the full names of the Limmud students or Aleinu members registering for the retreat by Feb. 28. The CBST Office will then process your registration individually and confidentially, holding your space at the early-bird rate and only processing payment once we have your confirmation. Space is limited!
