Necklaces2016.jpgLast year we launched a very successful program called Derech Schechter (The Schechter Way), a spin on the phrase Derech Eretz (respect).

This year we continued it with a twist: at the start of camp each camper receives a ravid (necklace) with this first token, or tag. Each time our campers are acting like the wonderful mensches they are, they will be rewarded with one of five tokens, which have our values written on them in English and Hebrew: Love, Friendship, Respect, Encouragement, and Kindness. Once a camper earns all five, they will be awarded the coveted "Where Judaism & Joy Are One" tag!
