“The liberal-yet-traditional atmosphere
allows acceptance of all Jews who are
looking to learn, at any stage of life, level
of learning, or level of observance.”

“I loved my teachers and especially the
learning that I could apply to the way I
choose to live my life Jewishly –
everything from how to correctly build a
Sukkah to the Jewish Philosophy classes."

"In the morning, I attended a three-hour Talmud class. As someone who attended an Orthodox day school for 13 years, I could already navigate around the daf of Talmud, yet for the first time, I was in a Talmud class taught by a woman.
In the afternoon, I took classes on divinity in Rav Kook’s writing, the commandment of moving to Israel, Psalms, Midrash, prayer, and exploring poskim and their opinions on Jews celebrating Thanksgiving. I was able to walk around the Beit Midrash, pick a book of Talmud or Rambam off the shelf, and read. We were constantly surrounded by our Jewish history and Jewish thought. However, what surprised me was how few of my friends from home know about the wonderful opportunities the CY has to offer.
The work being done at the CY is one of the true successes of Conservative Judaism. I found the Yeshiva to be a magical Jewish learning utopia made from Jerusalem stone."
