    was there. She really enjoyed it. The speakers, the ambiance, the food. She loved it. Only thing she didn’t like was when her flight home was cancelled because of the storm! But that had nothing to do with the actual retreat.

    What a week!

    This was my second “Retreat” and it was even better than last year which I didn’t think would be possible. If you have the opportunity, go. I don’t think you will regret it. And by the way, the food was the absolute best. They don’t short change you on how much or how well prepared it all is. Unbelievable is the best way to describe the experience.

    This looked absolutely beautiful. You can feel the inspiration just by looking at the pictures. A real Kiddush HaShem .

    He wasn’t there this year but was last. They like to change up the speakers. I’m sure he’ll make it there again though.

    Number 10 & 12 – Who the guy is? What kind of question is that? It’s Mendy Moscowitz. Look at the caption.
    He is a well known state-of-the-art photographer, capturing the essence of the moment in his unique style.
    I am a big fan of his….

    BEST VACATION POSSIBLE!! If your looking for super syncronism between the best of both worlds – THIS is it! Thank u JLI for bridging heaven and earth. Thank u also for putting equal thought into the excellent programming for women. This was a first. So many fantastic sessions geared to women. Very impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

    The three constants Bryski, Shochet and Jacobson hold it all together. They are superstars and my only problem was when they overlapped. Wednesday night keynote Shochet, Friday night keynote Jacobson, Shabbat day sermon Bryski I promise you don’t get anything even close to that anywhere in the world. I was blown away.
