There are many ways to plan your Kallah class experience this year!

We are thrilled to offer four-day classes and one-day workshops. 
Four-day classes meet for four days, at the same time each day (in either the morning or afternoon.) 
One-day workshops meet once during one of those time slots.

You can choose your own adventure at Kallah--maybe you want to take a four-day class in the morning for a deep dive into a topic, and then four separate one-day workshops in the afternoon. Or perhaps you want to take a four-day class in the morning, and another four-day class in the afternoon. Or maybe you really want to get a taste of everything, and choose to take a different one-day workshop each day.

Your schedule is up to YOU!

NEW THIS YEAR: Course selection will become available to you AFTER you successfully 
complete your registration. You will NOT choose your courses during registration.

We are excited to announce our lineup of four-day teachers! 
Course titles, descriptions, and more information about our teachers will be coming very soon.

  Transportation and Offsite Hotels

Q: What airport should I fly into?

We recommend flying into Denver International Airport (DIA). Fort Collins is approximately one hour north of Denver. 
  

Q: How should I plan on getting from the airport to Fort Collins?

We are proud to be partnering exclusively with Groome Transportation shuttle service (formerly Green Ride.) Groome provides hassle-free shuttle transportation from the Denver International Airport directly to the CSU Campus in Fort Collins. 

Groome Transportation is generously providing a discount to all Kallah attendees, and that discount can be accessed by registering here. 

When you register, under "Pickup location" select the drop down menu that says "Hotels and other regular pickup locations." We recommend selecting "FC - Academic Village." This will take you to the Academic Village on the CSU campus in Fort Collins. If you are residing in the dorms, this will be just steps away from your housing.

If you prefer, you can also register via phone by calling Groome directly at (970) 226-5533 and providing the code "ALEPH." Note that Groome does also offer a senior discount, but multiple discounts cannot be applied to one registration. All questions regarding shuttle service should be directed to Groome Transportation.

Q: Are there any hotels nearby if I don’t want to stay in the dorms?

There are two hotels near the CSU campus: the Hilton Fort Collins, and the Best Western University Inn. 

The Hilton Fort Collins is approximately an 18 minute walk to the dining hall, and a 20 minute walk to the building where most of the classes will be held. Transportation from the hotel to campus is NOT provided by Kallah. Reservations with the Hilton Fort Collins can be made directly on their website.

The Best Western University Inn is approximately an 18 minute walk to the dining hall, and a 12 minute walk to the building where most of the classes will be held.

If you choose to book at either hotel, please select the Commuter option at registration.

Kallah for Teens with Wilderness Torah!


Kallah’s unique and transformative teen program is back again! Led by Wilderness Torah mentors and guided by their core philosophies of earth-based Judaism and nature connection, teens will be guided into the wilderness on an exciting, connective, four-day backpacking adventure.

For four days, teens will explore the beautiful outdoors of Northern Colorado through backpacking (6+ miles to a basecamp), nature-connection, and wilderness adventure, while gaining insight into their own life’s journey through group building, Jewish teachings, and some solo time in the wilds.

Guided by the theme Finding the Hidden Light (Ohr Ein Sof), teens will nurture their connection with the natural world, themselves, their group, and Jewish tradition. Activities will include wild plant ethnobotany, wilderness travel skills, and Jewish experiences that attune us to nature's cycles. Ample space will be created for guided quietude and reflection as well as group sharing. The team will be welcomed back by the Kallah community before Shabbat and invited to share stories of their journey.


We are excited to see your family in Colorado this summer!
