Tzedakah is a Value of the Jewish People.
“Just as Others Have Planted for me – so too I shall plant for the next generation.” -Babylonian Talmud 23a
To give Tzedakah (Righteous Giving) is to participate in the promulgation of our Jewish Community. For over 60 years our beloved camp has inspired generation after generation of Jewish children to embrace their Jewish heritage, to take on the mantle of their tradition, and to rejoice in their vibrant Jewish identity.
As a not-for-profit organization we are dedicated to the mission of our camp because we believe we are investing in the future of Judaism in America and beyond. Recently, The Foundation for Jewish Camp produced a study to determine the impact of Jewish Summer Camp on our participants. The results of the study proved that:
“Camp attendance increases the likelihood of adult participation and identification in every one of these areas. As adults, campers are:
- 30% more likely to donate to a Jewish charity;
- 37% more likely to light Shabbat candles;
- 45% more likely to attend synagogue monthly or more; and
- 55% more likely to be very emotionally attached to Israel.”
