I had a marvelous experience participating in the Heritage Retreats. It was two weeks of learning and bonding. My connection to Judaism grew and I also saw that the other participants gained tremendous amount as well. In fact, over the years following my experience on Heritage Retreats, I have encountered several other fellow participants. And I was deeply impressed to see how far they have grown as well. It is genuinely inspiring.

This is an organization worth support.

Heritage Retreats is one of the most unique and innovative programs for connecting young Jews to their heritage. It provides the ultimate "Learn hard, Play hard" experience by combining great outdoor activities with engaging lectures and group learning. People who never met feel like brothers after a week at Heritage Retreats, and when they leave, they not only bring new friends with them, but a whole new relationship with Judaism and religion in general.
