What is it?
Northern Chagigah is where all of our northern communities meet together for a weekend of relaxation, learning, praying and fun. We have exclusive use of a gorgeous conference centre with extensive grounds.
Everyone comes for different reasons – to be spiritually recharged, to enjoy a Shabbat away from everyday routine, to be delighted that the children are being looked after and Jewishly engaged by RSY-Netzer.
Northern Chagigah is all about what YOU want. Whether it’s to be up at the crack of dawn leading a run around the grounds, tackling Talmud, having a good sing in a Shabbat service or enjoying a lie in and joining for lunch, it’s completely up to you.
The practical info…
This is a simply gorgeous fantastic conference venue that we have exclusive use of, there is, of course, a downside which we feel is worth it. There are double and twin rooms but no family rooms. If you have one child they will be on an air mattress in your room and if you have two children you will be given two rooms next to each other, and an adult should sleep in each room with the children.
RSY-Netzer will be running a full weekend of activities for ages 5+, if you prefer your child to remain with you and join in with sessions that is absolutely fine – this is your weekend.
We cannot organise an evening babysitting service Your children are your responsibility at all times, unless signed into an RSY session.
There is a single occupancy charge but Reform Judaism have absorbed most of the cost because we don’t think it’s fair.
We absolutely believe that all Reform members should be able to join all MRJ events and cost should NEVER be a barrier. If you would like help in coming we ask that you first speak to your community and then come to us so we can make up the difference for you to come.
