Joint weekend retreats take place throughout the year for each of the groups within the Youth Division.
Each group meets three times during the year for a weekend of togetherness, where they experience and develop a new aspect of their connections with each other. Friday nights provide the opportunity for a more intimate discussion among the children, and on Shabbat, the social and therapeutic activities combine opportunities to process grief and pain while further empowering the children.
The reunions take place either at the OneFamily Center in Jerusalem, or at the home of one of the counselors. Children and teens from all over the country come together to enjoy an independent weekend, where they all participate in preparing the meals and in organizing all other elements that go into a successful Shabbat.
