Incredible! The program was awe-inspiring, challenging, fulfilling and rich. I’m coming away with a lot more knowledge but with a thirst for more.
– Lauren Fine (Summer ’16)

Fantastic! I felt like I couldn’t get enough of the wisdom from all of the wonderful teachers here, they were always willing to talk outside of the classes.
– Sarah Palmer (Summer ’16)

I loved it! From Opening Circle on day 1 to classes, to Shabbat dinner, to Wednesday evening lectures, to the field trips and to the tisch, I thought it was perfectly structured and felt I had the perfect amount of extra curricular scheduling. 
– Joey Becker (Summer ’15)

The level & quality of the teaching and the scholarship of the staff was exceptional… The open learning environment, where no question was wrong, no perspective belittled, no assumptions about people made and no judgment, was something almost impossible to imagine until you have been there.
– Melinda Jones (Summer ’15)
