Heritage was an awesome trip that opened my life up to more learning and deeper thinking. I also feel like I have a community of people around me that share something that no one can understand but us. This is why I donate.

Most charitable organizations deal with physical, medical, or social needs. Heritage Retreats deals with souls; that is, it rescues and motivates - for a lifetime - young souls that are drifting away from their Judaic roots and may be lost altogether. Rabbi Kreitenberg, a visionary and doer, is an inspiring leader that has devoted his life to helping young college students understand, appreciate, enjoy and return to the religion of their forefathers. It is a task of a high order and he feels greatly saddened when he has to turn away applicants because funds are not available to include them in existing programs. If you feel that saving a Jewish soul is a worthy task Heritage Retreats should be part of your charitable giving.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have visited Heritage Retreats and spoken to college students enrolled in the program. They were very enthusiastic about the experience and told me that not only did they feel motivated themselves but they felt that they could influence their friends as well.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide outdoor activities and entertainment that might prompt individuals and families attending to contribute more towards covering actual expenses, rather than relying om contributions.

I am truly impressed with the organization. The students who attend the program gather tremoundous amounts of information in a warm surrounding environment. When the student leaves the program they have the knowledge to continue with their pursuit of their own religion. They are able to implement what they learned in our society that we live in. It is a great feeling to see people return to their faith that has existed for thousands of years.

For the past several years we have been a contributor to Heritage Retreats. I have personally visited their summer program in Southern California several times. I have found it to be an excellent program where the participants, whom I have interacted with, have always told me how much they have learned and the lifelong relationships they have formed have contributed to their lives. I have found Rabbi Kreitenberg to be an excellent teacher and administrator. I fully intend to continue supporting this program.

The Great!
