Beyond that, OSRUI hosts several programs for adults throughout the year:
Springtime features the Mah Jongg and Games weekend co-sponsored by the WRJ Midwest, the Devorah Quilting Kallah for those quilters who want to stitch together their creativity, spirituality, and Jewish identity; and Hava Nashira, a song leaders workshop in the late spring that was created by Debbie Friedman z''l and Cantor Jeff Klepper among others.
Fall programs include OSRUI's first ever Adult Sports Weekend, and our newest music experience and retreat for adults, Shabbat Shira. The NoFTY Reunion, for those in NoFTY (Northern Federation of Temple Youth) in the 1960s and 70s, returns fall 2018.
Every year OSRUI hosts several family weekends which are opportunities for families to experience Shabbat at camp and camp activities. Our popular Family Camp is scheduled for spring 2017 and Mother & Daughter Kallah and Father & Son Kallah are scheduled for fall 2017.
