Adamah Immersive Holiday Retreats include festive farm-to-table kosher meals, inspiring Jewish learning, spirited davening, restorative nature connection, and an inclusive community-building experience. Celebrate with us at Isabella Freedman, surrounded by the beautiful foothills of the Berkshire mountains, or at Pearlstone, only 40 minutes from Baltimore, with 180 acres of rolling hills and lush forests.
Pluralism and Jewish Ritual
All of our retreats welcome everyone, regardless of religious practice and background. Each of our retreats has a slightly different Jewish flavor, but all of them are rooted in our desire to be open to all. We take time to celebrate Shabbat and the holidays – although how that occurs may vary from retreat to retreat.
Throughout the cycle of the year, we try to offer different prayer experiences at our retreats (including alternative options such as meditation or yoga). However, you are always welcome to observe Shabbat or the holidays in your own way. We come together for meals and other moments as a whole community, and we aim to have our educational classes accessible to everyone. Please visit each retreat page to view the offerings.
