Countdown to Snorkel & Study
Seven days of stereotype-busting, myth-shattering Jewish learning, lots of sun, swimming, snorkeling and fun.
Are you ready for the BEST
Jewish winter break adventure you've ever had??
Then Snorkel & Study is for you.
What's on the Agenda
A crash course in Judaism you take at your own pace.
Hold on because these 7 days are going to go fast. This is a crash course in Judaism like no other.
If you’re ready to go deep, for an intense week of study, take every class on the schedule and fill in with tutorials. If you're just starting to explore and want to take it lighter, we’ll let you know which main classes you should attend.
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
Where we're staying
We’re staying at Mariners Resort Key Largo, a stunning oceanfront resort in the Florida Keys. Our classroom and the Clubhouse (our dining area) are a short walk from your gorgeous condo. Each condo has a living room, dining room, 2 to 4 bedrooms. Most units have a Jacuzzi. The condos surround a marina that opens directly into the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
