We are very excited to present you with the retreat calendar for 2014-2015. The education team at Temple Sinai strongly believes in the power and importance of these experiences. Our goals for your children are to provide them with a unique opportunity to be with other Jewish youth and their Temple Sinai family. Additionally, a retreat is the perfect opportunity to unplug for the weekend and to live in the moment. They happen once during the year for each grade, so please mark the date in your calendars now and make them a priority. We hope to share these wonderful experiences with you and your child!
For ALL Sinai Members- Public, Private, Day or any other school students you can think of…
This retreat is designed to give all our 2nd-5th (Religious School and Jewish day school students) a chance to be “campers-for-a-day” at Camp Coleman. Each grade will have a specific schedule and activities. The day will be filled with fun, learning, sports, arts & crafts, and Jewish identity-building activities.
This overnight is designed for students to get to know other fourth grade participants on a closer and deeper level, to expand their knowledge of Judaism, and begin to feel “at home” in Temple Sinai.
This year the 5th & 6th graders will journey to beautiful Charleston, SC. The Charleston trip includes a Carriage Tour of Historic Charleston, shopping at the local market, a ghostwalk tour of Charleston, attending services at Congregation K. K. Beth Elohim – birthplace of Reform Judaism in America, and many more exciting excursions!
Atlanta-DC Experience Part 1 (In Atlanta, GA)
February 6-8, 2015
This weekend experience is in partnership with 8th graders from Washington Hebrew Congregation in Washington, D.C. We welcome our friends from DC to Atlanta and will give them a taste of the South. It's going to be fun, meaningful, and challenging. This will be more like a NFTY retreat with other 8th graders.
