WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY
"It's not easy to get together a group of young adults who see the importance of bettering our Jewish Community. The Next Step retreat gave us the opportunity to delve into our community, see where we found issues and workshop ways to fix them. Through the support of the mentors and the knowledge that we gained, we walked away from the retreat knowing that we had the ability and power to shape our community!"
