I just wanted to thank you. Brooke is having a fantastic time – I heard from her yesterday and she sounds ecstatic. She’s made some good friends already and said she is ‘on the best bus by far’!

Thank you for giving Ellie the opportunity to give back. She is loving the volunteer work at the therapeutic horse farm. Working with horses and helping disabled children has been a life changing experience for her. Nothing is more important than teaching children that what they do matters, that everything they do and say impacts others. Hearing it said doesn’t compare to the actual experience. So, thank you Young Judaea, for not only the adventurous experiences, but for the ‘giving back experiences you have offered my daughter.

– Sheera, mom of Eliana

Thank you so much for everything! Brandon had an amazing time and truly enjoyed every aspect. All the kids were so wonderful to him and he will always have these incredible memories! Thank you!

– Stephanie, mom of Brandon

It means a lot to me that Ethan had a chance to be with his Israeli family. It’s the icing on top of this spectacular YJ Israel Discovery cake! Every time I read the program blogs, see the photos, or speak with Ethan and hear the excitement in his voice, the hair on my arms literally stands up on end. This is a fabulous program you’ve put together!

– Ellen, mom of Ethan
