The European Jewish Study Network, run by Chabad-Lubavitch emissary Rabbi Sholom Liberow of Brussels, Belgium, is planning its first retreat, to be held March 7-10 at the Regina Palace Hotel in Stresa, Italy, northwest of Milan.

The English-speaking program, which is open to families across Europe, will contain lectures from former Israeli Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, Professor Yehoshua Lieberman and other scholars, as well as entertainment from performer Avraham Fried.

According to Liberow, the weekend is an "opportunity for families to enjoy a vacation in luxury and a relaxed environment conducive to Jewish learning, while the children enjoy a special camp and babysitting."
