Attending YCT's Yemei Iyun

Four weeks ago, I attended YCT's Yemei Iyun in Tanakh and Mahshevet Yisrael (Bible & Jewish Thought), my third such convention. I found it to be rather enriching, especially to take two days out of my time to spend some time specifically studying the Bible with others who are also serious about the subject. As for the third day, which deals with Jewish thought, it is nice to take one day and listen to people speak about various Jewishly pertinent ideas and issues.
While the sessions were, to a degree, specifically for educators, I thought layperson and student alike got their fair share of material from the sessions.
I look forward to attending more such enriching conferences in the future.
