National Jewish Retreat bringing hundreds to Miami

Posted Friday, May 17th, 2024

Hundreds of curious Jews will be streaming into Miami, Florida, for the 18th National Jewish Retreat, which will run at Miami's Doral Hotel from Aug. 14 to Aug. 18. Seventy speakers will deliver 150 talks on intriguing Jewish topics over five days.

"Every year we bring a group from Orlando to this meaningful vacation and they always love it," says Rabbi Yanky Majesky of Chabad North Orlando "While they decompress and network, they're soaking up gobs of knowledge and inspiration."

Coordinated by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute - headquartered in Brooklyn, New York - the annual retreat will run from Aug. 14 to Aug. 18.  

The retreat brings together Jews from around the world, of all backgrounds, and immerses them in the richness of Jewish thought. It's a luxurious vacation in a five-star hotel, where participants rub shoulders with the world's most sought-after Jewish thinkers and speakers and mingle with like-minded peers. The inspirational program also serves up lavish spreads, hysterical comedy shows, and soulful concerts. 

"There's no other program on this scale," says Chanshy Majesky. "You're experiencing authentic Jewish learning and living, and you're doing it in style. It's a spa for the mind and body."

Since its launch in 2006, the National Jewish Retreat has traveled across the nation- including visits to Connecticut, Virginia, and California-leaving thousands supercharged with inspiration. The event attracts people of all levels of knowledge and all affiliations, including those with no prior background in Jewish learning. Attendees are not affiliated with any single synagogue or temple.
