Retreat 2023 Details

We're so excited to come together again for the 1-day CDT Retreat on June 3rd, 2023! This all-day event will be at Frank A. Day Camp in East Brookfield, MA.

We will have a variety of scheduled activities for all different interests and activity levels, including learning, music, arts, sports, archery, climbing wall, Israeli dancing, and nature-based activities.

To cover the cost of the site rental, staffing, and food we are asking members to contribute on a sliding scale between $36 and $250 per household. If this presents a hardship to your family, please contact EDO Margaret Farmer — we really want this memorable day to be accessible for everyone!


We will have a variety of scheduled activities for all different ages, interests, and activity levels, including learning, music, arts, sports, and nature-based activities. 

The full Retreat 2023 Schedule will be available soon. Here is the tentative schedule of the day:

10:00 am – Gather for Shabbat programming (services, all-ages, tot and outdoor programming)

In order to make the event a success, we need your help!

We welcome adults and teens to volunteer. Tasks include leading or helping with activities, meals, set-up, and logistics. We will send a volunteer sign-up form soon.

We want your leadership! If you have an activity that you would be willing to lead, please note it in your registration.


We will provide kosher snacks, lunch, and dinner with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. You are more than welcome to bring whatever food you like to accommodate other food restrictions (no alcohol permitted). Our cost per meal per person is $11. 

The full Retreat Menu will be available soon. 

COVID-19 Protocols

As a congregation, we want to enable as many congregants as possible to participate in the retreat. We are currently in the process of revisiting our Covid-19 protocols as a congregation, and will include the updated protocols here very soon.  The majority of the retreat will be occurring outdoors, where masking is optional.  We do ask that all those attending our events who are eligible to be vaccinated be vaccinated with at least one booster.  In order to balance the loosening CDC and MA state requirements along with our obligation to protect our more vulnerable members, our final policies will be detailed below as soon as they are confirmed.
