Stamford Retreat 2014
I was ecstatic when I boarded the coach bus for my first Torah retreat in the gorgeous Delaware County, located just three hours north of NYC. Stamford particularly has the quaintest little town. I absolutely got the wanderlust country vibe and had a hard time adjusting to life back in the city once the retreat had ended.
My favorite part of this trip, other than connecting to Judaism in ways I haven’t before, was witnessing such magnificent beauty all around me. From hiking through the hills to getting acquainted with farm life. Sitting by the campfire, singing songs late into the night under a million stars; it was magical! I won’t lie, it felt very hippie-like, and I convey that in the most optimistic light possible.
