  • “This weekend was the most amazing and well organized weekend I have ever experienced.  The most valuable part of the weekend, besides all of the phenomenal speakers is the fact that everyone from all different backgrounds (reform, conservative or orthodox) united together to help one another recovery.  Looking forward to seeing everyone at next year’s retreat.”
