Friday night, Nov 2, we are celebrating our Jewish overnight campers! This past summer, Jacob Cantus attended 6 Points Sci-Tech in Los Angeles. McKenzie Pantel attended Habonim Camp Gilboa. Evan and Sean Greenberg, Kai & Ari Fitzer, Shane Prunty, Elizabeth Halbreich, Jessa Kleinman, and Juneau Resnick attended Camp Newman.
All of them will share their experiences at our Kindergarten/First grade Family service. Jewish overnight camp offers a rare opportunity for our youth to be immersed in a Jewish environment along with their peers. Studies have demonstrated that children develop and sustain stronger Jewish identities as a result of attending camp. Consider sending your child to camp this upcoming summer!
We are grateful for our Temple Beth David Foundation and individual congregants who help support our youth in attending Jewish overnight camp. I’m proud that our synagogue also supports our youth, not just in going to camp but also our youth programming through WAFTY (our high school youth group) & Jr. Wafty (6-9th graders) Look forward to seeing you on November 1st, wearing white, and rejoicing with our children. The future looks bright indeed.
