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.

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

keeping in touch with students and volunteers I've met. In addition, I feel that my Jewish faith and practice has been enriched by the things I've learned and by the examples set by others on the program.

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.
