About Legacy Retreats

Founded in 2016, Legacy Retreats offers a new and exciting week-long program for young men, aged 21-35, in a beautiful and tranquil location in the English countryside. It will be a unique opportunity for a high-caliber and motivated group of students to get a genuine and immersive Torah learning experience and to explore their rich heritage.

Study and meet with world-class educators and their families. Over the course of the retreat, students will not only deepen their vision of Jewish learning, identity, ethics and spirituality—but can make significant steps in their Jewish growth and direction overall. This inspiring program, combining learning and discovery with rest and relaxation, offers a rare opportunity to explore what it really means to be Jewish and connected to Torah and tradition in the modern world.

In essence, Legacy Retreats brings a true yeshiva experience to the United Kingdom.

Due to COVID-19, we are currently running ONLY virtual "Taste of Legacy Retreats" programs. 

UPCOMING VIRTUAL SESSION: May 30th -  June 13th, 2021

Legacy Retreats, a project of Machon Yaakov, is a top tier program for its students, set in the grand isolation of the British countryside. The program provides a week of concentrated Torah learning with both Machon Yaakov's in-house and guest teachers. There is something indescribable about learning in the atmosphere of a grand English country house, with views rolling down to the Bristol Channel, and being able to focus on the Torah with no distraction. I had the privilege of participating in this year's retreat, and I have to say I found the experience unexpectedly refreshing on a personal level. The combination of high-level students, Rabbi Jacobs and his unusually gifted staff, and the other-worldly space created a special opportunity. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I certainly hope I am invited again...
