CLASP Fellows (Camp Leader And Synagogue Professional) are full-time year-round staff that spend the summer at a URJ camp and the academic year in a synagogue.
CLASP stands for Camp Leader and Synagogue Professionals. URJ CLASP Fellowships are a bold and exciting initiative designed to bring the magic of URJ camping into congregations and to bring the children from those congregations into URJ camps.
Hear from some recent CLASP Fellows.
During the academic year CLASP Fellows work in Reform Jewish synagogues building relationships with families and kids, imagining new and innovative approaches to youth engagement, and celebrating year-round Jewish life.
CLASP Fellowship positions are available to view here, and applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until positions are filled.
