Last year, I went to this retreat and thought it was great. In fact, it was so good that this year, the retreat will have a strong crew of Jewschoolers including Shamirpower, Ruby-K, BZ, Jo, RDL, and more. Here are the details:

Havurot and havurah-niks from throughout the Mid-Atlantic and beyond
will gather April 20-22 in Reisterstown Maryland
