A Jewish Summer Camp Experience

“Why Is This Camp Different Than All Others?” is a seven-minute audio feature exploring the universe of Jewish educational summer camps. Among those interviewed in the story are:

  • Jonah Geller, executive director of Tamarack camps and the Fresh Air Society of Michigan
  • Dr. Riv-Ellen Prell, an American studies scholar at the University of Minnesota and a leading authority on the impact summer camps have had on Jewish life
  • Deborah Dash Moore, the Director of the Frankel Center for Judaic Studies at the
    University of Michigan
  • Albert Vorspan, senior vice president emeritus of the Union for Reform Judaism and director of its Commission on Social Action

Produced by The Frankel Center for Judaic Studies and HKO Media the program is available free to any Jewish community, educational and media outlet interesting in posting it on their website or airing it on their media. The Frankel Center for Judaic Studies and HKO Media have many other features we would like to make available to the Jewish community and the success of Why Is This Camp Different Than All Others? would certainly affect our ability to do this.
