The Retreat As Spa, Education Center, and Camp for Grown-ups

By Amy L. Sales

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Fall 2006

Historically, the Jewish people successfully created the institutions it needed to transmit its values and continue its historical mission. While there are probably less than twenty dedicated Jewish retreat centers in the world, I would wager that within the century, there will be one in every major Jewish community. This generation has a once-in-a-millennia opportunity to create the new infrastructure of Jewish life, starting with the National Jewish Retreat Center.
