How have Jewish camps emerged as creators of positive spiritual experiences for Jewish youth in North America? How has Shabbat at camp become the focal point for primal Jewish experiences? Are these experiences exclusive to Shabbat at camp?

When Jewish camps began at the dawn of the 20th century, their leaders had little interest in creating Jewish spiritual experiences for their campers. Yet over the course of the past century, Jewish camps have gradually moved into providing primal Jewish experiences that diverse campers enjoy, parents appreciate and alumni fondly recall. 

In this webinar, author Joe Reimer (Brandeis University) and a diverse panel of respondents with interest in camp and Jewish experience will discuss the key points in his book “Making Shabbat: Celebrating and Learning at American Jewish Summer Camps” and draw conclusions from their different perspectives. Michelle Shapiro Abraham (Union for Reform Judaism), Avi Orlow (Foundation for Jewish Camp) and Rabbi Bradley Solmsen (Park Avenue Synagogue), moderated by Sharon Feiman-Nemser (Brandeis University), will help explore: Why is this book important? Who should read this book? What can be learned?
