Classes and Activities: Grounded in earth-based Torah, a robust schedule of thoughtful Jewish content enables connection to Judaism, community, and the natural world. Programs for adults and kids of all ages include hands-on activities, thought-provoking lectures, nature adventure, arts & crafts, games, and more!

Davening Options: We will offer a traditional mechitza minyan, and have siddurim and chumashim. A Torah-inspired floor-to-ceiling mural sets the tone for a visually and acoustically vibrant davening experience. Powerful and uplifting voices guide daily services.


Pearlstone provides everything needed to set just the right tone for you and your family to have a memorable, traditional experience. We provide everything you will need for your Seder, but feel free to bring special books or kids’ projects to enhance your family’s holiday experience.

There are multiple seder options: Our smoothly paced Communal Seders offers an enriching community-building environment and engages guests of all ages. Individuals and small families can opt to have a semi-private Seder in the Dining Room where tables are set apart enough for sufficient privacy and personal enjoyment.
