Do I need a certain level of background in Judaism to attend?
No, the program is geared towards young adults from a variety of affiliations, with limited backgrounds in Judaism who want to learn more about their heritage. It has been our experience that participants with very limited knowledge, as well as those who have already begun to explore their heritage, have found the level of study to be accessible, relevant and engaging.
What age groups participate in the program?
Sinai retreats participants are either undergraduate or graduate students, or young professionals.
Can I speak with some of the alumni of the program to get a better understanding of what I will get out of attending?
Yes. Please call us at (301) 807 2434 to arrange to speak with some of our alumni. We have alumni in most major cities in the U.S. and Canada.
