"Oh my God! ...I felt my heart open and connect with my fellow Jews and with God... There was so much room for spontaneous prayer, song, and dance... Amazing." ~ Aaron Schneider, Boulder
"I had such a wonderful and enriching experience on the retreat! I thought the schedule struck a perfect balance between traditional tefilah, non-traditional tefilah, and other spiritual practices/activities... I love the community that was built over the weekend. This retreat really drew an incredible group of playful, open, kind, and passionate young Jews... I'll definitely carry this experience with me for a long time..." ~ Ayelet Kreiger, Washington D.C.

"The Tefilah Retreat really opened my eyes to the broader ways people relate to Judaism and their own spirituality... It also allowed me to build on that by introducing me to a great young Jewish community in Denver / Boulder that I did not really know previously." ~ Jason Blau, Boulder
