We have sent 8 teens from a variety of our Ramat HaNegev Communities to take part in Jewish Summer Camps in Colorado.
The teens spent a 2 and half month preparation program designed to prepare them for meeting American Jewish Youth.
They learned about American Jewish life, Pluralism, Connection to Israel and leadership training. The groups of 8 teens spent the summer at 3 Jewish summer camps in the Colorado Mountains – Shwayder, Ramah and Ranch Camps. Were they meet with teens and spent their days learning about nature, Jewish identity, hiking, leadership and Tikun Olam”. 6 of the teens also spent 3 days in the Jewish Community of Denver volunteering, seeing the sites and learning about Jewish life in this amazing community.
Thank you to Jewish Colorado and the various camps for this wonderful experience
Thank you to our teens and families for taking part in this wonderful program.
Special thanks to – Daniel Ratzon and Dan Shapira who planned, ran and organized the teen’s preparation.
