“SUMMERTIME IS FOR JOYOUS JUDAISM” BY BET TORAH’S OWN LAURIE LICHTENSTEIN
The summer I went camp shopping I focused my search on camps that were run by Jewish organizations, where Jewish values, Jewish learning, and yes, Jewish ritual took center stage…
Joyous Judaism. Yes, I want my kids to unplug, gain independence, and learn to swim but I really want them to spend their summers tending to a love that will root itself in their consciousness, and grow each summer, nurturing a lifelong relationship with their faith…
My youngest went for the first time this year… [The letter that arrived] a week into camp was the best three lines I have read in a long time.
I will never experience a Shabbat like the one at Eisner.
It made me realize how proud I am to be Jewish.
All the singing, and dancing- it was quite enjoyable.”
