Comments from participants in the Conservative Yeshiva Summer Hebrew Ulpan in Jerusalem
“The Ulpan was far beyond my expectations and Nitza is a fantastic teacher. I hope we can study again soon.”
Marty Newman, Providence, RI
“We attended the 3 week summer program at the Conservative Yeshiva. Our mornings were filled with Ulpan, and our afternoons with studying text, touring the area, and volunteering in the community. We got to know the others in the program, adult students at various stages of life, from different professional backgrounds, and from around the world. At the only egalitarian yeshiva in Israel, we learned with Jews from many different backgrounds: Reform, Conservative, Modern Orthodox, and Masorti, who were involved in many different aspects of Jewish leadership and life. It was an amazing trip!”
Jeff & Hali Goss, Oklahoma City
“I really got way more than your very modest Ulpan tuition should have provided. Yasher Koach on creating and maintaining such a wonderful resource for people like me. I will treasure my experience and start saving for my next visit.”
Mimi Zukoff, Morristown, NJ
“I think we have learned about as much in two weeks as I learned in an entire year of French in High School … I am happy to report though that I found myself increasingly using Hebrew interact with the general Israeli population … First, props to Nitza! She is an amazing teacher and to any year students who may be in her Ulpan class, you are in for a treat.”
