Testimonials

"I am writing this letter to thank you for the Kollel-Hillel Weekend Retreat at Harrison, BC that was held from 28th to the 30th of January. It was a unique experience filled with lots of knowledge and fun blended together in perfect harmony

Your support towards students by discounting the price as well was a very kind and generous move. The knowledge and experience I gained from it, I truly value and will take with me for life. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that I have matured even more, both spiritually and socially, after attending the Kollel-Hillel Weekend Retreat at Harrison, BC.

Thank you again for making this event happen. I look forward to the time that I can help make a change in other's lives as you'll have in mine."

Sincerely,

L.P.

"Coming from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where there is no Hillel to speak of on campus, no Jewish events to speak of, I was hesitant to go on the Harrison Hot Springs, going knowing only one friend from UBC. Going turned out to be the best decision I could have made! I made many Jewish friends which was something I felt lacking in my Vancouver reality coming from Toronto, and had a great Shabbat experience with a diverse group. Since going I have been in touch with the friends I made there, and am thankful for the people I met who are now a part of my life. :)"

"Going to kollel on Friday for Shabbat is always a highlight of my week. Its a wonderful and much needed break from university life to greet old friends and meet new ones. Between the people and the energy, I always find myself very comfortable and happy to be among my fellow Jews"
