Here is what guests are saying about our previous programs:

THANK YOU both and more importantly, we CONGRATULATE you on putting together the most wonderful Pesach getaway.

You guys thought of every detail, from thoughtful welcome baskets in the room, tubes of toothpaste, insulated hamper bags for packed lunches, and so much more!

The Kids Program was amazing (we hardly saw them), the entertainment was incredible and the constant supply of great food was not just beautifully presented – but every meal was absolutely delicious.

Rabbi Kennard simply ‘nailed it’ and added such a great feeling to the program!

Kol HaKavod to you both, it was truly 10/10! May you continue making fantastic Pesach Getaways.
