Discover U literally changed my life. I met some of my best friends there and had so many great experiences. A great environment - can’t wait to go back!

Discover U solidified my learning in Israel and prepared me for college. Although, it was so fun, I didnt even realize how much it made me grow!
The Zone has been spectacular experienced for me. Every moment was a blast, weather bonding with other fun people my age, playing sports, or learning new things. The friendships that were created are still being built even after leaving the camp and I’m sure these relationships will last a lifetime. I’m very happy with time I’ve spent at The Zone and I only look forward to more good experiences with Oorah.”

Coming to Discover U helped me greatly by introducing me to yeshiva learning, while at the same time enjoying trips, activities and friendship. I'm thankful to Discover U for being a part of who I am today.
