Nance and Steve’s Site



During summer 2007 I went to Jerusalem to study at the Conservative Yeshiva. This school is affiliated with the Jewish Theological Seminary where I received my Master’s and with the Conservative Movement of Judaism.  I was there for 3 weeks with a few days for traveling on either end. Links to posts and pictures are below.  Please  also find a link to the Yeshiva’s website and also the announcement about the scholarship I won for this program.
