I do not identify with any religion and do not typically have spiritual moments, however the combination of intentional sharing, connection to nature, and utilization of Jewish traditions along with the strong community here allowed me to experience more than one spiritual moment this summer and for that, I am extremely grateful.Tawonga Staff Alum
