Did you attend a URJ summer camp or a Reform congregation’s day camp? Maybe you studied in Israel with NFTY-EIE’s summer session, volunteered with Mitzvah Corps, or attended the Religious Action Center’s Machon Kaplan program? The Reform Movement offers a number of opportunities for youth to engage in immersive Jewish experiences during the summer months. In addition to thousands of current participants, we also have a massive alumni network – and each person has his or her own story to tell.
Whatever your Reform Jewish summer experience as a youth, we want to see your photos and hear your stories! Submit yours now and we’ll post them to the URJ’s upcoming Summer Youth Experience album on Facebook. Recount your favorite memory, tell us about the first time you met your best friend or significant other, explain how your summer experience shaped your Jewish identity… feel free to get creative and personal!
This photo project is just one small part of the URJ’s July online theme, which will focus on and highlight the many opportunities for Reform Jewish summer youth experiences. Join the conversations on RJ Blog, chat with @URJ and @URJCamps on Twitter, or reminisce on the URJ Facebook wall about your own Jewish summer youth experiences.
