URJ Kutz Campers and Immigration Advocacy

URJ Kutz Camp Talks Political Advocacy

This summer, a class of teens at the URJ Kutz camp in Warwick, NY studied political advocacy with Alison Stamm, the Director of Youth Engagement at Temple Sinai of Roslyn.  Alison’s minor, called “Get up. Stand up. Stand up for your rights,” emphasized the importance of influencing legislative change for the greater good.  Drawing upon materials from the Religious Action Center, these teen activists studied Jewish text, researched legislation and created videos to share their values with their communities and elected officials on three important issues: immigration, disability rights, and pluralism and women’s rights in Israel.

  1. I wish that these youth programs would focus more on Jewish knowledge and much less on left wing political advocacy. The goal of these camps is to produce good Jews not good Democrats.
