New Square, NY-only 30 miles from New York City, but its Skeverer Hasidic residents are essentially part of another world. The outside world is shunned, and those inside are forbidden from asking questions. Shulem Deen was born into this world, but at age 19, he started questioning everything about it until his faith completely evaporated and he was forced to leave the only world he’s known. All Who Go Do Not Return is an inspiring, heartbreaking, and reflective memoir of a man struggling to stay true to himself.

Join us Tuesday evening at 5:30 PM in Room 132 of Goldwin Smith Hall to hear firsthand about Shulem's journey. 
Register for our winter #BigRedBirthright trip now! Trip dates: December 19-31.
