Staying In Touch: June 2008

This issue of the URJ College Department email is to let you know about programs and resources available to you and your college students from the Reform movement.

KESHER: From Camp to Campus

This summer the College Department is excited to be piloting a camp visit program entitled “KESHER: From Camp to Campus.” Several different URJ camps (including GUCI, Greene, Kutz, Jacobs, and George) will take part in one to four days of KESHER programming, led either by a visiting KESHER program associate, or an on-site member of College Programs team. The programs will target both the college-age staff members at camp as well as high school incoming 11th and 12th graders, with the goal of making these audiences aware of the resources and programs that KESHER offers on campus. Additionally, we hope to learn more from these groups as to what KESHER can be doing for them. Should the camp visits prove successful this summer, we hope to continue them in the future, eventually implementing valuable and substantive KESHER programming at all of our URJ camps.

In May the Union for Reform Judaism launched a new blog — News and Views of Reform Jews that will, we hope, become a free marketplace of ideas about Judaism and the role it plays in our lives. The blog is a platform for Reform Jews and those who care about Judaism to come together to kibbitz and learn in an online community. Come join the conversation!
