The next morning started with a one hour hike for those hardy women. After breakfast Rabbi Kim Ettlinger led us in Shabbat morning service in the Garden. The day's workshops included: Yoga, Alternative Medicines for Women and Eating Healthy in a Time Crazed World.
The next morning many of us took walks or hikes around the neighborhood. We gathered around after breakfast to summarize the weekend. Our retreats have been an excellent way for our Sisterhood to connect with many women who have not been involved in our Sisterhood. This year, too, we were fortunate to have Karen Strauss, the wife of Rabbi Andrew Strauss of Congregation Emanuel in Tempe, who encouraged us to plan a retreat with her Sisterhood.
