PESACH IS ALL ABOUT… 

Generations of family members celebrating the Pesach seder together in a warm and inviting atmosphere. The Gross and Schechter families, three generations of Jewish hospitality for almost a century, help you create lifetime memories. Three sumptuous daily meals include the traditional foods of Pesach updated for the sophisticated palette.
The Gross and Schechter Families will be celebrating Pesach at the lovely Hilton Doubletree Somerset Hotel & Conference Center, located a short forty minute drive from midtown Manhattan. This Art Deco-style facility has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation and boasts numerous luxuries and amenities, including a heated indoor pool and hot tub, as well as courts for basketball, tennis and volleyball.
On top of all that, you’ll be able to enhance your experience even further with an endless supply of activities and programming.
Immerse yourself in a wide range of classes and shiurim, Daf Yomi, Aleph Beta video presentations and seminars on current events in the United States and Israel. Our scholars in residence are world­ renowned in their fields.
We offer classes on contemporary topics of interest in the Jewish world, defensive driving courses, CME classes for lawyers and cooking demonstrations. Want even more? We have art and culture classes, book reviews and wine tasting, always a delight to our guests.
You can also pull yourself off the grid and enjoy a game of mahjong, canasta, a myriad of board games available upon request. Swim or play tennis, enjoy the grounds or explore the surroundings searching for antiques, golf, horseback riding, Camden Aquarium, Liberty Science Center, Statue of Liberty and more. Manhattan is a short ride away if working or playing in “the city” catches your fancy.
Our nights are filled with entertainment options. Marvel at magicians, sing along with musicians. Our shows include well-known acts and entertainers from around the country. Nightly entertainment always followed with special themed dessert galas, sweet and savory to complete your day.
Dynamic day and night camp programs have always been one of the highlights of the Gross & Schechter experience. We understand that parents are only as happy as their kids are, and we provide them with on­site fun, swimming, a carnival, an all-day game room and imagination/creation activities. Our guests will also enjoy a Mets game and themed barbecue. Mommy & Me programs, junior congregation and Avos Ubanim are sure winners every year for our children and parents as well.
Join our family of guests at the Gross & Schechter program at the Hilton Doubletree for a Pesach experience founded on tradition, peppered with entertainment and topped off with fun for every generation.
We can’t wait to see you there.

Memories for the family that will last a lifetime

5/ 5

I have been going away on this program for years and it’s such an amazing experience each and every time. It is the one time a year my entire family gets together and the Gross and Schechter families always help make it a memorable experience each time. The program provides amazing childcare for the kids and intellectual speakers for the adults. They offer great off site trips during chol hamoed as well as on-site activities. They also provide delicious food, separate swimming and they are always willing to give you the personal attention you need. When my family goes to this program for pesach we know we are going to have an enjoyable, inspiring and memorable Pesach.

Best of both worlds!

5/ 5

Have been with this amazing group since its inception and cannot imagine spending Pesach anywhere else. The Gross and Schechter families treat their guests truly as family. They are unbelievably gracious and accommodating. The food is delicious and more than plentiful… the programs are entertaining and the lectures are enlightening… the guests are friendly and down-to-earth. There is no better way to spend your Pesach than with family and friends and there is no better place to spend it than with this group!

An amazing local program for the entire family

5/ 5

The Gross and Schechter Pesach program is really amazing. The hotel is great, nice and spacious rooms for everyone’s “stuff” and plenty of connecting rooms. The program is run so well and has something for everyone. The day camp for the little ones is beyond amazing. Besides for the amazing hours (they even have night camp!) they have programs for all the children in camp, from breakfast until right before dinner. They even serve the kids lunch in the children dinning room! The teen program is also great, they go on great local trips during chol hamoed. They have scholar in residence for adults, special programs such as cooking demonstrations, wine tasting and questions and answer with the Rabbis. The food is plentiful and delicious, three gourmet meals plus the tea-room open with yummy snacks and food throughout the day!! It is also convienently located for those who need to work on chol hamoed. The hotel has great amenities- indoor pool, gym, outdoor pool to sit by and relax, walking paths and outdoor tennis courts. Sit back and relax and enjoy Pesach with Gross and schechter!! A real vacation for everyone!!
