What EYAHT students say about EYAHT

EYAHT has equipped me with the hashkafa and foundation that are imperative to handle all of life's challenges (both good and bad), along with great friends and role models.
--Belinda Levy, Canada

EYAHT restored my trust in people. The rebbetzins were so giving of themselves and did not want anything in return.
--Yehudit Dulgin, South Africa

There is no other place in the world that could have prepared me for a meaningful Jewish life like EYAHT. I owe EYAHT the foundations of my performance/excitement/appreciation of mitzvos and halacha, importance of learning Torah, and life-long relationships with friends and teachers, and yiras Shamayim.
--Sara Berzansky, JEWEL Program Coordinator, Jerusalem, Israel

I received tremendous assistance in all areas of my growth from the staff at EYAHT and their well thought-out classes. While I was engaged to be married, the teachers gave me guidance and support. Even now that I am married, many of the teachers take phone calls at home and give much guidance and support in all areas of building a home physically as well as spiritually, including Halacha and practical shalom bayit issues. All in all, EYAHT has been and will remain a strong part of the growing "me." Thank you.
--Shayna Krakowski, USA

I joined EYAHT during its Elul program. The learning environment forced me to take a candid look at who I really was and where I wanted to be headed in life. It was a time when I was discovering myself, and it gave me the strength that I needed to take some big steps forward in my growth.
--Anna Harrington, England
