Join Us for a Summer of Music and Fun!

campfire-tour.jpgJewish musicians have long brought excitement and entertainment to the Reform Jewish experience, performing and building community at camps and congregations around the world. During this unique and uncertain summer season, when these artists cannot take to the road as usual, we are pleased to offer a series of online concerts to continue to extend the joy and community that their music fosters.

Tune in on Sunday nights this summer at 8p.m. ET, every week from June 14 – August 23 to enjoy performances from some of the biggest names in Jewish music.

Mondays through Thursdays, join us on the URJ Facebook Page as songleaders from our URJ camps lead “after-supper” song sessions.

These online performances are free to attend, thanks to the generous underwriting of individual families within our community; attendees are invited to support and show their commitment to our camps and other URJ Youth programs by making an online donation.
