In Their Own Words

Hear From Active Participants

"I was absolutely blown away by the Torahmates retreat. It was inspiring, fun, interesting and filled with endless opportunities… I was very impressed with the location and beauty of the site as well as its majestic and whimsical animals, the warmth and beauty of the shul, staff members and by all of the programming… The place is purely magical and holy! Each meal provided me with opportunities to meet new people. I made some wonderful friendships with women of all ages and backgrounds and treasure the memories I have with them and look forward to making new ones."
