Review for Heritage Retreats Inc dba University Heritage Society, Clifton, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've gained tremendously from my experiences at Heritage Retreats. My life has been inspired and enriched by the students, volunteers and teachers I've met. I was amazed at the open-mindedness and courage the students displayed in their willingness to challenge their previous convictions about Judaism. They chose to spend a summer or winter break by taking classes, often without friends, instead of taking a vacation. They didn't flinch from the difficult task of examining their lives and determining what kind of positive changes they could make. I only hope to emulate their example in some way.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely knowledgeable, insightful and caring. The teachers took the time to get to know each student.
