This summer, give yourself 26 days in California to envision your own Jewish life. Through artistic expression, dynamic learning, and exploring the outdoors, a summer at BCI is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in Jewish culture and develop relationships that will last a lifetime. You will have the opportunity to interact with some of the world’s finest Jewish scholars and artists. Located on a 3,000-acre ranch just north of Los Angeles, BCI has brought young Jews (aged 18-26) from all over the world to have a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience for the past 65 years. BCI is non-denominational and we welcome participants from all levels of knowledge, background and affiliation. This summer we are offering two sessions: June 14-July 9 OR July 12-August 6.
