Camp Nehirim Information Session facilitated by Harvey Perle
Camp Nehirim for GBT Jewish Men & Friends, 8/20 - 24, Easton Mountain Retreat Center, Greenwich, NY catering to the interests of Gay, Bi, and Trans Men in the Jewish community.
Nehirim is a national community of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Jews, families, and allies, committed to a more just and inclusive world.
Nehirim is best known for its weekend retreats – transformative, fun and inclusive weekends of LGBT Jewish community and spirituality. All kinds of people come to Nehirim retreats: religious, secular, queer, straight allies, Jewish, non-Jewish partners and families, and people of all different sexual orientations, gender identities, economic backgrounds, ethnic backgrounds, and ages.
This particular retreat is five days of swimming, hiking, Frisbee, river tubing, campfires, cookouts, delicious food, inspiring workshops, spiritual practice and Ruach !! The results are the construction of a warm & supportive international community.
