June 30 marks 70 years since Menucha Retreat and Conference Center came into being. We would love to celebrate this important milestone by raising $100 for each year. Thank you for considering a gift and sharing with family and friends.

The efforts to keep people safe have struck at the heart of what we do at Menucha. Yet through these challenging times, everyone remains focused on the day when we can once again welcome guests and friends to the property.

Today we find ourselves at a critical moment in Menucha’s history.

Today, we are calling in all of the love that exists for Menucha out in the world. From those who have been enriched by their time at Menucha. Those who have experienced a moment of clarity and connection that bettered their life. Those who need Menucha to remain a constant in this world.

The Revive and Restore Menucha campaign represents a bold effort to sustain Menucha through these challenging times. Our goal is $375,000 to cover fixed costs and retain our core staff.

We can’t influence the tides of the virus or the mandates set to keep us safe, but we can steward Menucha to not only ensure our survival but that we'll once again meet our mission well.

It will take all of us, with gifts of all sizes, to weather this storm. We hope you will consider a gift to Menucha today.
