On Sunday, Feb. 9, Women of the Temple Beth Ami in Newhall experienced a wonderful and memorable for one day at its Women's Retreat.

They were given a taste of what it is like to experience the highlights of their bi-annual weekend retreats at Brandeis in Simi Valley.

Each year the retreats have a theme that the women experience through prayer, discussion, music, song, dance and art tying the theme together, making it a spiritual and moving experience all together.

This year's theme was the story of Miriam in which they were led in music, song and Israeli dancing by their own talented musicians Wendy Hersh and Ter Lieberstein unfolding the important spiritual role of Miriam.

Two different portions were read and discussions were led by organizer Judith Stolnitz, whose knowledge and leadership always comes through with a well thought out program that flows easily making the retreat always a memorable and moving spiritual experience.

Originating Sisterhood President Mary Fuchsman, now an excellent certified Yoga instructor led the approximate 25 women in attendance for a well-balanced and peaceful yoga class.

Afterwards the women relaxed and expressed their artistic side with a craft. The Women's Retreat was catered or had contributions from Brent's Deli, Stonefire and Trader Joe's.

Many thanks and appreciation goes to Ter Lieberstein, Wendy Hersh and Mary Fuchsman for adding so much of their talent and knowledge to the retreat. Of course, none of this would take place without organizer Judith Stolnitz for her leadership and wit. Also, many thanks to the help of Debra Block and those that assisted her.

Now that these women have had a taste of what it is like to experience the retreat, without a doubt will be looking forward and telling others to come to the weekend retreat at Brandeis at the beginning of February 2015.

Simply put, quoting Judith, "I Love the Retreats!"
