Karen Fields Kehila Retreat

About the Retreat

Beginning in 1979, Karen Fields was the leader of Kehila's retreat. Since her untimely death in 2007, it has taken a committee to replace her. The Karen Fields Memorial Retreat continues to be the annual opportunity to bring the community together in fellowship, study, and fun during Shabbat.

Retreat Traditions

  • Shabbat services Friday night, Saturday morning, and Havdalah
  • Saturday late-night folk/pop music sing-alongs with Reb David
  • Jewga (Yoga with a Jewish flavor)
  • Adult education
  • Food, food, and lots of schmoozing
  • Children's activities
  • Saturday afternoon soft ball games and hikes
  • The talent show that has produced numerous original songs and memorable skits.
