Exciting plans are being drawn up in Toronto, the city to host the upcoming National Jewish Retreat. 35 shluchim gathered this past week to discuss plans and organize local recruitment efforts.
The retreat, convening for the 15th year, will take place August 11-16, 2020, at Toronto’s five-star Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
The six days of the program feature stimulating lectures, hands-on workshops, comedy shows, film screenings, and more, with the hotel kitchens providing sumptuous cuisine to suit every taste. Guests also receive unlimited access to the hotel’s fitness center and pool.
The NJR faculty is an unparalleled assembly of over 70 of the world’s most sought-after Jewish thinkers, theologians, academics and educators.
The meeting of the shluchim was coordinated by Rabbis Shmuly Karp and Mendel Abelsky and generated much enthusiasm among the local shluchim in preparation for the forthcoming Retreat. Vaad members Rabbis Epstein and Gansburg presented as well.
