6th Annual
Jordan River Jubilee

 Sunday, Sept. 11- Monday Sept. 12   
טו - טז אלול

Treat yourself to a fun, nurturing, nature retreat with other awesome women! This is Gan Eden on earth! (The Jordan right above where it meets the Kinneret.) Nature's wonderland--perfect for playing and hanging out together in the river as well as finding your own private fairytale spot for some deeper Elul reflection. 

Besides relaxing in the water and swimming and hanging out with wonderful new and old friends, we'll be privately and collectively preparing for Rosh HaShana.



Arrival and set up (11:00-1 ish)

*Channel the River II with Aviva Spiegel

Channel the River- An Extreme Sport tailored to every ability! (individual coaching and small group sessions each day) Learn to navigate the river -- climbing, floating, swimming against the current, body surfing, reptilian crawling, rock resting, hanging-on-branch-stretch,  and more techniques to use the River as a natural jungle gym to explore and challenge our own physical abilities and limitations and how we "cope with" our resistance and "relax into" the flow we do not control. The Jordan is not only a miraculous river (the very cells of this river still exclaim, "Am Yisrael Come Home! Enter the Land!"), it is an endlessly inspiring playground within which to explore the Land of our Soul. The River is a living metaphor upon which to hang our experience of "channeling" our personal Divine Flow into our physical being

Private Healing sessions for energetic release & rejuvenation🌈are available with Maskit Ben Moshe Monday. If you are interested best to be in touch with her by phone to book a time, or you could wait til the river to see if she has openings.  Maskit's treatments are a holistic blend of reflexology, acupressure, shiatsu and therapeutic massage. 052-353-4065
