Racah Retreat V

This year's Racah Retreat will take place at the Alpha Resort (Kibbutz Beit Alpha) on 8-9.3.20 (right before Purim - so get your costumes ready; we are aware of the issues concerning these dates but it was the best possible choice due to many constraints).
Alongside the scientific program we will enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Gilboa mountain, hiking the area.
Most importantly, Purim will be the guiding spirit of our festive retreat with an unforgettable Masquerade ball full of surprises.
