Emanuel Retreats

Family Weekend Retreat

The chance to study issues of Jewish concern, get to know one another, and have fun are some of the reasons that the Family Weekend Retreat has been one of Emanuel’s favorite events for many years. If you are new to Emanuel, the Retreat is a great way to meet new friends and spend some time in a relaxed and beautiful environment. Young and old, singles and families are encouraged to attend. Please contact the Emanuel office, at 773-561-5173 for more information about any retreat. Children’s programming and babysitting available. 

The Annual Women’s Retreat is held every year in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin at OSRUI. Each retreat focuses on a topic, all amid good food, enthusiastic singing, inspiring services, Torah study, relaxation time, and the general camaraderie of the weekend.

Donations made to the Cantor's Discretionary fund will be used to provide scholarships for this important event. For more information about how to make a donation to the Cantor's Discretionary Fund, please call the Emanuel office at 773-561-5173.
