Having the opportunity to explore profound aspects of Judaism in one of the most wondrous, natural havens in the country (and the world!) was such a gift. Our teachers emulated endless wisdom, passion, and inspiration, and it was contagious. The schedule felt so balanced and exciting every day, with empowering, thought-provoking classes in the mornings and epic adventures in the afternoons and evenings. We really got to soak in the awe and majesty of Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and beyond, and we had a lot of opportunities to reflect meaningfully and to unwind.
The most precious gifts of all from this trip, without a doubt, were the lifelong bonds created with fellow participants and staff. They are my besties and mentors for life! We keep in touch weekly and reunite whenever we’re in the same area. I’m forever grateful to be a part of such a down-to-earth, growth-oriented crew.
Making the decision to spend my December break with Heritage was frankly one of the best decisions I’ve made.
Rabbi Hersh was a great guide. He provided a lot of knowledge about every event and about every location that we visited. I was able to learn to appreciate the little things and not take things for granted. I am thankful for this amazing opportunity that allowed me to witness things that will stay with me
I highly recommend everyone to go on this trip since no amount of stories or pictures can replace the experience of being physically present and experiencing it for yourself.
Heritage was a life changing experience.
