Time to Sign Up for Rosh Hashanah in the Rockies


Rosh Hashanah is early this year. It's the Wednesday after Labor Day weekend.

We've moved our Rosh Hashanah in the Rockies retreat closer to Boulder to Glacier View Ranch, so that you, your friends and your family can attend more easily.

If you haven't already signed up, I wanted to invite you to join us for Rosh Hashanah this year. More details / register >>

Rosh Hashanah in the Rockies - Sep 4-5 2013

New This Year:

  • A la carte options. Join us for just the evening, the day, or the whole retreat.
  • Glacier View Ranch is just 20 minutes from North Boulder - so it's an easy drive.
  • Camping by the lake is included. It's an amazing spot!
  • Catered dinner and breakfast is included with the full retreat registration.
  • Lodge rooms are still available, but will likely sell out soon.
  • If you're 21-30 years old, we have a 90% off scholarship for the retreat.

If you haven't joined us for Rosh Hashanah in the past, it's an amazing way to spend the High Holidays.

It's great for couples, singles, and families with kids.

We still have room for your friends and family, so please let them know.

I visited Glacier View Ranch's 550 acres last week, and here's a view of the campground, in front of the lake:

I hope to see you soon for Rosh Hashanah!

If you have any questions or need more information, please email me or call Jeff at 303.417.6200.

L'Shana Tova,


Rabbi Jamie Korngold
Adventure Rabbi

P.S. We still have 1-2 more spots in the Adventure Bar & Bat Mitzvah class that begins this Saturday, August 23, 2013. More details >>

We will hike, learn, and hike some more.

Sunday, Aug 11, 2013
: Join Jeanette Domber and Rabbi Jamie for another fabulous wilderness adventure.

Join us for our last hard core hike of the season, an 8-9 mile round trip hike to Pawnee Pass in the Brainard Lake Recreation area. We'll climb about 2000' feet from the trailhead to the pass as we pass alpine lakes and meadows, with plenty of wildflowers, and a few creek crossings.

We will get an early start to avoid the chance of afternoon thunderstorms by meeting at 6:00 am sharp in Boulder to carpool to the trailhead. (If you are willing to drive, please come with a full tank of gas.)

You must be in Colorado shape to do this hike. Plan on being out all day and pack accordingly (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, rain gear, a warmer layer just in case it's cool as we climb up to 12,550 ft, plenty of water, and food, etc.). We will return to the car pool location by 5 pm at the latest (but usually earlier). Please RSVP for car pool location and just in case we make any last minute trail changes due to weather

What: 8-9 miles at altitude with 2000 feet elevation gain.

When: August 11. 2013
We will meet in Boulder at 6 am at a location to be disclosed when you sign up. We should be back by 4 or 5 pm.

Suggested equipment: Plenty of water, lunch & snacks, sunscreen, rain gear, warm layers, waterproof boots, & poles (We might be crossing some snow fields here and there)

Fee: free for members, all others $22 per hike or (Late fee of + $5/hike, begins 7 days before before the hike)

Guides: Rabbi Jamie Korngold, and Jeanette Domber

Who Should Sign Up?
To come on this trip you must be in strong physical condition and able to hike at a sustained pace on an adventure which will last up to 8 hours. (If you are in "Boulder" shape, you'll be fine. This won't be as hard as a peak climb. But, for people that don't get out much, it would be hard. Call us if that doesn't make sense!)
You must be willing to work with a group. We are unable to accommodate dogs or children under 16.

Please do not show up at the trail head without advanced registration.
Participants must speak to Jeanette
or have been on hikes with us before to be eligible for this trip.
