"Jewel was the perfect first step to truly delving into my Jewish identity. Jewel has made me a more inspired, intelligent, and Jewishly-literate person. It has also made me a better person. I recommend Jewel to every beginner who craves the knowledge of what it means to be a Jew in an experience that is fun, balanced and not overly intense. Jewel has absolutely changed my life."

"Leaving the program, I’m taking with me so much more than I ever expected. The teachers, madrichot, and other girls on the program have inspired me so much to be a better person and a better Jew. I can’t wait to go home and apply what I’ve learned and share it with my family. I’ve done other learning programs in the past, and honestly none of them compare to JEWEL."
