Summer 2020 and Covid-19 - A Special Message

We know how hard is to make plans for this summer because of the uncertainty of Covid-19. We want to help.

Because your safety is our priority, we'll be waiting until June 1, 2020, to make a final decision about running Sun & Study this summer.

And to make it easier to apply without any risk, we're reducing the application fee from $50 to $1. Sign up now and you have until June 4 to withdraw your application at no cost.

If you have any questions, want to make sure Sun & Study is for you, or need help making plans to come once we confirm, call or message us at 917-364-2754. We're here to help!

Why Sun & Study?

Did you go on a Birthright trip to Israel and then wonder what’s next?

Do you love Friday night Shabbat meals at your Chabad House on campus?

Did you go to Pegisha or Jewfest in New York City? Amazing, right?

Have you done a magical week at Snorkel & Study in Key Largo?

Do you wonder…

What does it mean to be a Jew today? Why is there so much antisemitism? What’s Israel got to do with me? Why marry Jewish?  Is abortion allowed in Judaism? What does Torah say about dealing with anxiety, sadness and guilt? Do Jews believe in souls?

Would you love to learn more...but you just don't have the time - between your summer job, your internship and your vacation with family and friends?

We have the answer: Sun & Study - brought to you by the same people who created the amazing Snorkel & Study.

What's on the Agenda


A crash course in Judaism you take at your own pace.

Hold on because these 6 days are going to go fast. This is a crash course in Judaism like no other.

Provocative discussions, text-based Jewish learning, Q&A with experts -

Plus whitewater rafting, horseback riding, swimming, tanning and an unforgettable Shabbat with new friends.

Whatever you do, leave your preconceptions about Judaism home, keep an open mind and don’t miss the challah baking, the farbrengens (we’ll explain) or the talent show. There are going to be lots of surprises.

She said, she said.

I can't believe how much I learned in such a short period of time, and about so many things I didn't expect. 

~ Amie from Montreal

The teachers are such strong, smart, outspoken women. Seriously, I've never met Jewish women like this before - they're not intimidated by anything.

~ Claire from Bellmore

I never had Jewish friends so I was kind of expecting not to make any friends at all here. Instead I'm leaving with 2 of the closest friends I've ever had. 

~ Robby from El Paso
