Mid-West and Mid-Atlantic Retreat Recap
YJA hosted its 2017 Mid-Atlantic and Mid-West Retreats in Matamoras, PA and Alto, MI, respectively, over Presidents' Day weekend. Out to prove that they were, in fact, #MidBest, Mid-West attendees enjoyed sunrise yoga, vegan s'mores, an interfaith discussion and much more all with beautiful lakeside views! The Mid-Atlantic attendees hit the slopes of the Pocono Mountains, discussed how Jainism influences their daily lives and got into a friendly snowball fight!
