More Info / Registration

The Nehirim East Spiritual Retreat is Nehirim’s flagship retreat weekend, bringing together over one hundred LGBT Jews from around the country to the beautiful Isabella Freedman Retreat Center in Connecticut. This year is our eighth annual retreat, taking place June 15—17. Directed by Dr. Zvi Bellin, Nehirim East is a unique weekend of spirituality and community: workshops, great food, sports & swimming, a pluralistic community, and plenty of time to connect and meet new people. Nehirim East offers you the opportunity to:

EXPLORE your connection to Judaism with spirited Shabbat services, workshops, and a special program on “Embracing our Journey” created by Rabbi Debra Kolodny (Blessed By Spirit, ALEPH), Ken Page, LCSW, and Dr. Zvi Bellin.

RELAX and enjoy nature and a beautiful 100-acre site in the Berkshires.

CONNECT with an inclusive and diverse community of LGBT Jews, partners, and allies. We are Orthodox Jews to atheists, students and seniors, men, women, and the rest of us. Whoever you are, there are people like you at Nehirim!
