"What a wonderful retreat! The NJR staff is just amazing everything was done so well."

EILEEN BRUSKEWITZ Waunakee, WI

"Moved, inspired, enlightened...words cannot describe the feelings."

DENNIS HARRIS Calabasas, CA

"Thank you so much, for a great spiritual uplift for our whole family, and in particular, for our teenage daughter Julie Meng! All of us are excited, thrilled, to have had the opportunity to learn from so many bright minds, eloquent lecturers, teachers of character and knowledge, and to feel accepted, included and encouraged by many at the retreat for our pursuit of Judaism! We have all learned a lot from this event, and have kept a warm, sweet memory of the four days. We plan to come back next year, G-d willing!"
