About the Alyth Weekend Away
Whether you are a ﬁrst timer or have been before, the Weekend Away is the perfect opportunity to be part of community, to meet new people, to feel ownership of your synagogue, your community and your Judaism.
Who is it for?
The Weekend Away is for everyone and all the family. There is something for everyone over the course of the weekend. Please note that children under 18 must come with a parent or carer, and this includes all madrichim.
What will we do?
The programme will speak to head, heart and hand, with the opportunity to explore new activities, learn new skills and to pray and learn with community. As well as services, meals and learning, there will be a variety of outdoor and indoor activities to choose from, or just read the newspaper with a cup of coffee looking out over 40 acres of beautiful land.
What is there for children?
The Youth and Education team and madrichim (our Alyth trained youth leaders) will be on hand through the weekend running a programme for children during the day and in the evenings.
Is it baby-friendly?
Of course! There are family rooms, there will be special parts of the programme for babies and their families, and we can arrange babysitting in the evening. Plus there is lots of land to explore if you need a distraction or a place to walk while you push the buggy to get your baby to sleep!
I am a young adult and want to come
We would love you to come. There are special grants for young adults to come to the Weekend Away. Contact email@example.com to discuss.
Where is the Alyth Weekend Away?
This year’s Weekend Away is nearer to London than ever before! It will be held at the beautiful High Leigh Conference Centre in Hoddesdon, just 7 miles from the M25, about an hour from Alyth by car. The local railway station is Broxbourne, approximately a £6 taxi from the town centre. The public spaces at the site are fully accessible and there are accessible rooms.
What time does it start and end?
The Alyth Weekend Away team will be at the centre to greet you from early afternoon, and you can join us any time on Friday 27 March from 16:00. There will be coffee and tea available throughout the weekend and please feel free to come and settle in before we start the evening service at 19:30. There will be activities in the morning on Sunday 29 March, and lunch that day is included, but feel free to head home before lunch. Just let us know.
