This past summer, our 15 URJ camps across North America and Israel programs provided the space where more than 11,000 children, teens and young adults could breathe free. Summer 2021 was clearly a summer of healing at our camps, as children returned to immersive in-person living, learning, laughing, crying, hugging where they can share their fears and dreams in a loving and accepting environment.

Remembering Elizabeth “Betty” Blaustein Roswell, z"l, an Animating Presence in Our Global Reform Movement
Rabbi Rick Jacobs
Betty Roswell will continue to live on through the generations of her devoted and loving family. And she will live remain an animating presence in our global Reform Movement that she and Arthur have helped to nurture and inspire.
This summer was unlike any in our lifetime. While we’re incredibly thankful that Jewish youth were able to experience camp from home, we're thrilled to announce plans for in-person programming in summer 2021.
