What are your new year resolutions?

We are wishing you a sweet and prosperous New Year 5772.  So what are your new year resolutions this year?  Would you like a set of tools which will help you be a better person, heal your relationships, and build a closer connection with Messiah?  We invite you to join our second year of mussar practice with the Riverton Mussar program.

The Hebrew term Mussar (??????), is from the book of Proverbs 1:2 meaning instruction, discipline, or conduct.  The Mussar movement was a Jewish ethical, educational and cultural movement that developed in 19th century Eastern Europe, particularly among Orthodox Lithuanian Jews.


Yadayim Men's Retreat 2009


The  facts and suggestions:

  1. Payment for the retreat is due in full ($80) by May 1st.
    Those who need special arrangements for payment, please speak to me in person and we can work something out.
  2. We need to coordinate carpooling to the cabin.  Let me know who is available to drive and who needs a ride.
  3. We will be eating at the cabin all weekend, and all food for Shabbat (4 meals) needs to be pre-cooked and will be re-heated on demand.  On the way back on Sunday we will stop for lunch.
  4. Please take note of your assigned food items to bring for the weekend.  The planning for the menu was designed to balance out the food load.
  5. Bring snacks and water for yourself in case of unexpected events.
  6. Cell phones do not work in this area.  We will have a phone at the cabin, but it only has local calling features.
    The phone number for the cabin is:    360.599.9167
  7. There is room for 10 to sleep.  There are 4 single beds, the others are shared.  Bring your own air mattress and bedding if needed.
  8. This weekend is a time for the men to bond both spiritually and socially.  We will have study and discussion time as well as time for activities and relaxing.  Bring games and toys to share and enhance the experience.
  9. Don't forget your Torah and your siddur.  I will bring some copies from the shul as well.  Let me know if you don't have one and we will bring extras.
  10. We are going to try and keep a certain level of Shabbat observance - no cooking, no writing, no creating.  Please be mindful of this as we are in the moments of Shabbat.

I look forward to this exciting weekend.  Contact me at 206.851.7905 if you have any questions, or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
