The 71st Annual Laymen’s Institute will be held at Camp Ramah in Palmer, MA from June 08 – 11, 2017.
Laymen’s Institute is of a wonderful mix of relaxation, sports, eating, learning, prayer, spirited singing and camaraderie. Each year’s schedule is centered on our two Scholars in Residence. Other activities include “Minyan in the Grove,” a learner’s minyan, softball, tennis, swimming, boating, bike rides and ‘Hearing Men’s Voices’ programs that focus on current personal issues.
The weekend begins on Thursday afternoon and ends Sunday morning before noon. Men may arrive and leave to their own schedules, though we discourage traveling on Shabbat. Camp Ramah is in Palmer, MA, just 75 minutes from Boston. Carpools are available.
