She learned skills, gained an appreciation for studying and having discussions, for traveling and exploration, and for living with a unique and wonderful group of young women.”

“Rabbi Lynn and the teachers enriched Nechama's understanding of Judaism. They also prepared her for the world at large. Our daughter is now attending university and we are very pleased with her understanding of other world opinions and how Judaism relates to everything she is learning. We are thrilled at the young lady she is becoming and we are incredibly grateful for everything Meorot has done for her.”
