Each year, KlezKanada’s Summer Retreat draws people from around the world. On the shores of a calm lake, nestled amongst the beautiful Laurentian mountains, participants celebrate the tradition, innovation, and continuity of Jewish music and Yiddish culture. Intergenerational, interdisciplinary, and international, KlezKanada’s Summer Retreat has grown into one of the leading Jewish cultural events in the world.
