Yet Another Retreat-O-Gram!

The Ninth Annual Anshei Darom Region Retreat is coming...Feb 22-24 at Camp Ramah Darom in the beautiful mountains near Clayton, Georgia!

Yes, It's Rocket Science

With the drought possibly forcing an outdoor fire ban for our Anshei Darom Region Retreat, we have the finest scientific minds in the mountains of north Georgia trying to figure out how we can heat the rocks for our world-famous sweat hut.

We know every one of you has an opinion or two about how we can do it - and some of you may actually have some knowledge. We're open to all suggestions, no matter how ridiculous, so just let us know what you think will work.

If you're spiritually moved, maybe you can petition Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue to pray for rain or even snow between now and our retreat Feb 22-24. There was a little snow there this week, but we don't know if it was enough.

And if nothing brings precipitation, maybe we'll drag race golf carts on the dry lake bed.

To join us, simply go to our handy online registration form by clicking the link - there's also a link on the sidebar of this page, near the top. Fill out the registration form online and then send a check for $190 (payable to Anshei Darom Region) to our fearless Region Treasurer and Retreat Registrar, Joe Zendlovitz:

If you are interested in davening, reading Torah, or otherwise actively participating in our Shabbat services or Sunday morning minyan, please be sure to contact David Kerven - dkerven (at) comcast (dot) net - to sign up. We'll have an updated list of all honors and participation opportunities still available.

Hey, how much easier can it be?

Be sure to ask your (male Jewish) friends to sign up - the Retreat is a great place to introduce 'em to a whole bunch of guys from all around the Southeast region. Camaraderie, new friendships, Adult Beverages in the bunkhouse and around the campfire (assuming we can have one!)...what's not to like? It's a super opportunity to experience the FJMC mission firsthand: Involving men in Jewish life. And...it's fun.

See you there!

The Retreat Committee
