Here are what some former participants have said:
"I learned a lot of interesting stuff and had some nice discussions that made me realize how diverse the Jewish community at MIT is. It was overall a very fun experience!"
"Made me think about things I wouldn't have thought about. Exposed me to books for the future (i.e. books other members read that I didn't)."
"It was really nice hearing so many different takes on the same sets of books. It was a wider perspective than I am used to hearing when discussing Judaism."
"It opened me more to discussion, and hearing others' experiences and beliefs. It also enriched my knowledge in Judaism and even about Israel :)"
"I started reading Jewish books again, which I hadn't since starting MIT, and it was interesting to hear the different viewpoints and interpretations of Judaism both from the authors and the other discussion attendees."
