Sukkahfest at Pearlstone
Pearlstone’s Sukkot Retreat is a joyous, diverse, and nature-filled gathering for Jews of all ages and backgrounds.
This immersive retreat includes inspiring Jewish learning, spirited singing, festive farm-to-table meals, and an inclusive community building experience.
Our magical 180-acre campus comes alive in the fall with spectacular colors on the trees and in the Sukkah, which will be the center of our sacred gathering. We will have an eclectic range of sessions, including text, embodied practice, discussion, and communal song. This retreat takes its place among the signature Pearlstone holiday celebrations and will be punctuated with delicious, healthy food, music, and activities for people of all ages.
All of our immersive retreats are focused on creating an environment of loving warmth, connectedness, and Earth-Based Torah. This multigenerational gathering of participants, both local and distant, is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience Pearlstone’s stunning and unique outdoor setting with intentional collective communal engagement.
