Attendees of the program were overwhelmed with excitement from this unique experience.
Joseph T. from Phoenix AZ shared his amazement, “The name of the event was very appropriate because although I never experienced anything like this, it did just that, ignited my soul! I now see that it’s not about the color of your hat but your connection to Hashem!”
Jacob M. from Pittsburgh PA spoke of his exposure to the “big books”:
“I always enjoyed the Singing and the spirit of Judaism but I was just afraid of all those big books that religious people seem steeped in! Coming here allowed me to confront the books head-on and see that I can also learn to understand them!”
Josh F. from Chicago, IL told of the meaning it gave him:
“Coming here I did not know what to expect but what I found was amazing! In University the time flies by, everything is so mechanical. Here it felt as if time came to a stop. Every day was so full of learning and inspiration that my time here felt like the most meaningful in my life!”
