    8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Sedona is known as one of the most beautiful places in the world.  And, in late July, the high desert in Arizona is a great place to be.  There have been two previous “Sedona Sojourns”, and the depth of the friendships that flourished during those few days, still exists.  Your “hosts”, Mary Jane Rynd, Rabbi Alicia Magal and Beverly Kievman Copen, have designed a special weekend for you.  Time to be together, a few fun things to do, some delightful meals at wonderful restaurants, and the opening Friday afternoon at MJ’s very, very special “cabin” on Oak Creek will be the very best.  Of course, gallery shopping and/or hiking are always on tap.  Want to bring someone special we should know?  Just let us know by registering online by June 24th.

Organizers:  Mary Jane (MJ) Rynd, Rabbi Alicia Magal and Beverly Kievman Copen
