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.
The trip was well planned and we had the good fortune of being led by an exceptional tour guide. Rabbi Hirsch added an important perspective to everything that we experienced. It is really hard to put into words what we saw and it definitely was a life-altering experience. I already encouraged my friends and relatives to sign up for next years trip; that speaks to how highly I rate this experience.
Heritage was a life changing experience.
