Review for Heritage Retreats Inc dba University Heritage Society, Clifton, NJ, USA
I didn't know what to expect. For weeks, I studied the website. Eventually, I decided to apply and prepared myself to spend one, long week in the wilderness with a group of Jewish women.
It wasn't summer camp and it wasn't school. It was a learning opportunity and a place to reset my religious biological clock. Each day, we met with a variety of world renown scholars and teachers, and carefully debated and learned about ideas ranging from sacred text to societal norms. As the week continued, I found myself excited for every class and every moment to interact with women from different backgrounds countries and observance levels.
Heritage Retreats surpassed my expectations. Instead of the traditional classroom/school setting, the teachers provided me with the enough tools for me to make my own decisions. In fact, the week was not long as I originally thought, but rather not long enough. Heritage Retreats gave me more than a weeks worth of memories. The other participants and have a special connection, and I value the contributions to my future as a Jewish woman.
