It's That Time Again...

Yes, indeed: It's time to start making plans to attend the Eleventh Annual Anshei Darom Regional Retreat, to be held Feb 19-21, 2010 at Camp Ramah Darom in beautiful Clayton, Georgia.

My, how things have changed in just one short year! The economy is slowly crawling out of the tank, Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona are so full that Governor Sonny Perdue is now praying for another drought, and Atlanta has received the "Best Imitation of Houston After a Heavy Rain" award. But one thing has not changed, and that's the quality Jewish experience you'll have at Camp Ramah Darom.

We're still working on the details of our program, but we can promise that it will be interesting, informative, packed with spiritual renewal, and Just Plain Fun. Repeat Offenders Those of you who have gone to previous Retreats know what I'm talking about... and if you've never been, what are you waiting for, the Moshiach?

Some of the things you can expect:

1. A spirited Shabbat

2. Spirited brotherhood

3. Lots of good food

4. Lots of spirits

5. Lots of friends – old and new

6. Therapeutic and revitalizing yoga sessions

7. The eleventh appearance of the Famous Sweat Hut

8. A Jewish experience unique in the entire Jewish world

We will have an opportunity to pick the brains of the FJMC leadership and learn all about ways to inject vitality and meaningful Jewish experiences into our clubs' programs. And when I say "leadership," I mean it... because we'll have Mark Berlin, president of the International Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs, right there with us.

Our featured entertainment will be... Alan Sussman Saul Sloman Us!

Our featured attendee will be... You!

[And did we mention the Famous Sweat Hut? Of course we did!]

Make plans to attend NOW! February 19-21, 2010 at Camp Ramah Darom in the beautiful North Georgia mountains, just west of Clayton and decidedly north of Eden – the Eden Roc, that is.

The cost this year will be $190 - same as last year. To reserve your spot, just send an e-mail to doug (dot) friedman (at) labwize (dot) org, and send a check (made out to Anshei Darom Region) to our Regional Treasurer, Joe Zendlovitz:

Joe Zendlovitz
4404 Glendale Square
Nashville, TN 37204

Don't forget to tell us the name of your Men's Club, whether you're a Kohen, Levi, or jest plain Israel, and your shirt size.

More details will follow, along with an updated link to the registration website. Meanwhile, sign up - or at least, mark your calendar - and get ready for another fine Retreat!
