“Camp changes lives, from the cabin to the dining hall, and every inch of grass and gravel in between,” wrote Sara Beth Berman, in her application to become a Nadiv educator.
What is Nadiv? Nadiv is an exciting pilot program the Foundation for Jewish Camp has just launched which is building partnerships between Jewish schools and nonprofit Jewish overnight camps in six communities across the United States. Conceived in collaboration with the Union for Reform Judaism and with funding from The AVI CHAI Foundation and The Jim Joseph Foundation, Nadiv is placing full-time, year-round Jewish educators in several regions, a pioneering effort to create a new kind of position for qualified Jewish educators.
