Menucha is currently closed to guests through May 31, but we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back whenever that may be possible.

The numerous cancellations of Menucha’s own programming as well as those from guest groups are taking a financial toll as you can imagine.

If you find yourself able to offer your financial support now, it will go a long ways in helping Menucha to not only sustain their fixed overhead expenses, but also ready themselves to pull out of this when the stay at home order is lifted. Equally, they are grateful for well wishes, stories, and prayers.
