Spending a few days in seclusion from the world is one of the most important bonding experiences a community can create for itself. Every year at the beginning of Spring Semester (late January), the Academy holds an annual retreat. This year we will be at beautiful Camp Ramah in Ojai, California. All students must attend, and the retreat is also open to faculty and board members.
The Va’ad in coordination with the Administration plans the Retreat, which includes speakers, workshops, outdoor activities, and a variety of prayer experiences from meditation and chanting to exuberant song. One of the highlights of the year!
