This summer give yourself 26 days in California
To explore and define your own Jewish adult life

 Summer 2015: June 16 to July 12

 

“I am walking away from this program with an incredible new sense of who I am and how to keep asking questions.”
–Sarah Rosenthal, Township of Washington, NJ  

"To me, BCI means that for 26 days, I had the opportunity to enter a safe space where I could become confident in parts of my identity that I was unsure about before. Because of BCI, I feel that now I have an established Jewish practice, I am comfortable expressing myself creatively, and I have reconnected to our land. BCI also means having a supportive community of Jewish friends who continue to add to my Jewish experience!"
–Dani Blake, West Orange, NJ

“[BCI] introduced me to an enlivened Jewish life and community in the holy context of creativity.”
–Kyle Lebell, Woodacre, CA  

“During BCI I learned to trust, to believe, to always ask questions, to live in a community, to share, to fear, to try even though I’m scared, to discover the most amazing souls, make the most wonderful friendships, and how to love with all my heart my new BCI family and myself.”
–Alona Millgram, Ness Ziona, Israel
