Here in Santa Rosa at Camp Newman the mornings are foggy and chilly, in the mid-50′s while the days are warm and sunny, high 70′s to low 80′s. And each day 500 campers, over 100 staff, and a regiment of rabbis create the greatest success story of Jewish education.

Number one: be welcoming.
As soon as you arrive at Camp Newman you are greeted by a large group of teenagers, clapping and dancing and singing “Shalom Aleichem.” You know you are in the right place and—more than that—you know that you belong there, and that the people around you want you to be there.

Judaism,according to one accounting, has at least 15 different words to describe joy. From rina(meaning joyous song) to simcha (meaning pure joy), Jewish living is supposed to be an expression of joyous living. I have learned over the course of the years that while simcha (joy) is possible even during the darkest of times, it often takes purposeful openness to allow joy to permeate your life.
