Rimonim has given me tools and knowledge to reach my dream goal: to become a Jewish Studies teacher anywhere in the world. Its faculty is knowledgeable, approachable and fun! They gave me all the support I needed and made me feel appreciated. Taking the Rimonim program was one of the best decisions I have made in my life, BH!

“Thank you again for the most amazing Rimonim semester trip around Israel. Besides just being an incredible trip in of itself, I have already used so much of what we learned in my teaching. I was teaching about Shlomo HaMelech's coronation at Gichon. It was only then, showing pictures to my class (which I wouldn't have if I didn't go on the trip), when I realized what a difference actually being to the place makes. Thank you so much for the opportunity!”

As an educator, the material that we learned struck a balance between theory and practical applications to bring into all of my kodesh lessons. As a school manager, the Rimonim course has given me tools to help my staff to improve their classes. Having the privilege to be guided and supported by Herzog Global’s education experts is a gift for which I am extremely grateful.
