The following is recommended based on Monday-Thursday stay at Moreh Retreat 2020. Please adjust as needed.

  • Bible, notebook, & pen or pencil (any translation of the Bible is fine; we most commonly use the Cepher, HalleluYah Scriptures, the Scriptures, or KJV) 
  • Pack sunglasses and sunscreen. Although we will be in air-conditioned rooms and inside most of the day, Detroit could be hot and humid.
  • Hygiene Essentials. This is separate from what you leave in your hotel bathroom. Bring a small brush, some make up, hand sanitizer (you will be amongst crowds of strangers in small breakout rooms) and any other necessary item to freshen up halfway through the day. Moreh Retreats have long days and are often made up of two parts – the educational daytime and the special events in the evening. Sometimes you won’t be able to go back to your hotel and change or freshen up, so come prepared.
  • Back up battery. You’ll be using your phone and/or tablet a lot during the Moreh Retreat, so bring an extra battery if you don’t have time to sit by a wall charger
  • A sweatshirt or sweater for air-conditioned rooms, if you are susceptible to chills.
  • Casual clothing and comfortable walking shoes. All activities are casual. Shorts, t-shirts, jeans, and tennis shoes are appropriate.
  • Medicine: Please let us know if you need assistance.
  • Bring your insurance card or a copy of your insurance card.
  • Additional Items: Alarm clock, cell phone charger, spending money, camera, toiletries, and flip flops for the shower.
  • For those who owns a shofar, we encourage you to bring it to blow during special moments during the Moreh Retreat..


  • 1 blanket (lightweight) 
  • Full & Twin size sheet set
  • 1 pillow w/ pillowcase
  • 1 laundry bag (NO plastic bags)


  • Bath towels + 1 lake/pool towel
  • Washcloths
