Guest post from Rabbi Howard Cohen: Dog Sled / Shabbat Retreat

You are cordially invited to a DOG SLED / SABBATH retreat March 14 – 17.

DImagine yourself mushing a team of beautiful dogs through powdery snow against a backdrop of stunning mountains.

As Theodore Herzl said, “if you will it, it is no dream”.

The trip takes place in western Maine. It begins Thursday evening with meeting our mushing guides, Kevin and Polly from Mahoosuc Guide Service, an orientation and then settling into a log cabin for the night. Friday morning after breakfast we meet the dogs and head into the bush. We mush and ski into our winter camp, replete with cozy and toasty warm wall tents, in plenty of time to prepare for Shabbat. The next day we enjoy incredible peacefulness, a bit of Torah study and more mushing. Later in the day under a canopy of more stars than you can imagine we say good bye to Shabbat with Havdalah. Sunday we break camp and head back to the trailhead.

The cost of the trip which includes meals Friday through Sunday and all technical gear is 650.00. There is a small additional fee for the B & B Thursday night.

I promise it will be an experience (in the positive sense) of a life time. I’ve led these trips for 20 years and every trip is always GREAT!
