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

Rating: 5 stars  

As a tutor on Heritage Retreats I had the opportunity to come in contact with a wide range of amazing jews from all over the country and had the pleasure of working with an incredible staff. The setting is always just right, providing a comfortable atmosphere where participants can learn more about their Jewish heritage from world renowned personalities and from a staff of tutors who are more like friends than anything else. As a tutor I have kept in touch with many of the students from the program and continue to be inspired by their willingness to grow and how they have taken what they have gained on Heritage Retreats and made an effort to apply it to their everyday lives. I can honestly say that the moments of inspiration and the relationships I have made on Heritage Retreats are ones that I cherish and will take with me for many years to come.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the manner in which it is run in an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and not pressured to take any steps they are not yet ready to make.

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

great! first class!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

drastically change the face of American Jewry.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
