What we are about

The Pearlstone Retreat Center ignites Jewish passion.  Our retreat center, farm, and programs enable and inspire vibrant Jewish life.  Engaging Jewish, faith-based, and secular organizations, individuals, and families, Pearlstone Retreat Center serves all ages and backgrounds throughout Baltimore, the Chesapeake region, and beyond.

  • We are inspired each day to live by the values that help to define the Pearlstone experience:
  • We are genuine and open and embrace all with loving warmth.
  • We create intimate and personal connections that facilitate the interconnectedness of people no matter their background or affiliation.
  • We help people simplify and focus on the fundamental elements of life.
  • We connect people to the land so they can understand and value the connection between adam and adamah; people and earth.
  • We bring Jewish values to life to enable people to connect to Jewish roots and inspire them to live those Jewish values.
  • We teach through joyous, hands-on experiences.
  • We create an environment and programming that fosters spiritual experiences—integrating body, mind, heart, and soul.
  • We embody, teach and inspire the practice of environmental sustainability.
