Ski Retreat at Copper Mountain

Feb 27- March 1, 2009

Join Rabbi Korngold and Jeff Finkelstein for our new winter retreat at Copper ski resort. We'll combine the inspiration of Jewish learning and Sabbath joy with skiing in the Rocky Mountains.

A combination of great new friends, outrageous skiing, good snow, thought-provoking teachings, and of course lots of good food, means this new event is going to be a winner.

As our Adventure Rabbi community grows, we are creating four annual retreats to bring us together during the year. The retreat program includes High Holidays, Ski Retreat, Passover and coming summer of 2009, a Summer Retreat.
