Jewish Programs

The center of our daily Jewish programming is our morning tfillot, or “prayer services”. Every day after breakfast, the camp divides into age groups for the classic CYJ Shacharit (morning service). We hope to familiarize our campers with the most fundamental prayers so that they can feel comfortable wherever they go in life. These groups may also discuss the meanings behind the prayers and consider how they relate personally to their messages. At times, we’ve offered a more traditional service for campers and staff when there is sufficient interest.

At meals, campers will learn the traditional pre-meal and post-meal blessings. In the  educational segments of their afternoon activities, some of our campers will study more Jewish basics, like the customs of Shabbat and the major holidays of the year. A memorable project for our Tsofim is their Kosher Hunt, where they use their new-found kosher expertise to scavenge a real grocery store for kosher items. And of course, all of our Zionist, Israel programming has a Jewish side to it…
