The CY has impacted me in several ways. The yeshiva is like immersion in a mikva: not all results are immediately apparent. However, I have found new connections to Jewish practice and have learned new ways to look at the mishna, PLUS – my Hebrew is much better! There have been so many highlights of this program. One was the Ezrat Yisrael services at the Egal part of the Western Wall has been a highlight. If you want to learn/improve your Hebrew- COME! If you enjoy Torah study – COME! If you want to connect more deeply with your Judaism – COME!
