Youth Engagement

What do CLASP Fellows Do?

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.

About the CLASP Fellowship

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.
