Our Bodies, Our Souls

January 19, 2018 at 4:00 pm - January 20, 2018 at 8:00 pm

Mount Zion’s 21st Annual Jewish Retreat for Women

The Wow of Now! Awaken Gratitude and Awe
OBOS is made possible, in part, by a generous donation from the Women of Mount Zion.

Our Bodies, Our Souls has become a treasure to many women over the years. We hope you’ll join fabulous women for a meaningful shabbaton (retreat) in the beauty of Stillwater, MN. Join us to experience a retreat full of singing, study, prayer, relaxation, and fun (oh, and massages!).

Rabbi Esther Adler, Cantor Rachel Stock Spilker, songleader, Wendy Goldberg, and teacher-in-residence, Sara Lynn Newberger, will join to help create an enriching Shabbat experience.

Our guest scholar for the weekend is Sara Lynn Newberger, from The Newman School at Talmud Torah of St. Paul. Sara Lynn is the director of TTSP’s Hineni: Adult Jewish Learning and Contemplative Practices. She believes passionately in the importance of Jewish learning and the impact it can have on people’s lives. Sara Lynn will partner with Rabbi Esther Adler, Cantor Rachel Stock Spilker, and songleader, Wendy Goldberg, in leading and teaching throughout the retreat.

Our retreat facility is the peaceful Dunrovin Retreat Center, located on 50 acres along the beautiful and secluded shore of the St. Croix River. Arrival and registration will take place between 4:00 and 5:30 pm on Friday, January 19, 2018. The retreat concludes after Havdalah on Saturday, January 20 at 8:00 pm. Confidential financial assistance is available to members.
