Celebrate all things at the intersection of Judaism, food, culture and food memories. We are in the heart of California’s wine country so spend this Shabbat tasting local wines, learn from local chefs with classes and demos and share our own food memories while we also repair the world and do our small part to fight hunger.
Secure you spot at the retreat and let us know you’re coming. Our team will be in touch soon so you can personalize your all-inclusive retreat package and finalize payment.
