Kallah 2021


August 5 – 11, 2021

Through Story, Memory, Text, and Nature

The theme of this summer’s Kallah, “SEEKING THE WAY Through Story, Memory, Text, and Nature” is intended as an invitation to reflect upon, converse about, and contemplate this challenging year.

The Kallah will feature opportunities for formal and informal Talmud Torah with the teachers and writers among us. Kosher food, hiking, guided spiritual journaling, art, song, and local entertainment—as well as the natural mountain beauty of Wildacres—will contribute to a week that promises to shape our challenging past and point towards our promising future.
If you are a rabbi, rabbinical student, or a member of a rabbinic family and would like to spend 6 rejuvenating, refreshing, and restorative days breathing clear air in the Blue Ridge Mountains, please join us at Wildacres August 5-11, 2021.
In accordance with CDC and local guidelines, the GCAR extends the invitation to rabbis across the denominational spectrum and their partners who are fully vaccinated by July 22. Symptom-free children are also welcome. 
Register before June 5th and enjoy 2019 rates!

The Rabbinic Kallah at Wildacres has been likened to “Rabbi Camp” and filled with great learning, chevreh, and ruach. This trans-denominational boutique conference is an opportunity for colleagues to broaden their knowledge, their friendships, and their spirits in a unique mountain-air retreat setting (see the many testimonials below). Bring your family and join colleagues in an idyllic setting, complete with excellent study, meaningful davening, delicious kosher food, comfortable accommodations, fine entertainment, optional hikes and programs in the area, and terrific activities for all ages. Fees include room, linens/towels, food, gratuities, and study/art materials. Limited scholarships may be available. If you are new this year, please deduct 25% of the fees!

Join us at The Rabbinic Kallah at Wildacres and experience a week like no other!
