Havdalah Society

Camp Solomon Schechter has a 68-year tradition of fun, friendship, and Jewish education in the Pacific Northwest.

Havdalah and Tzedakah are both special traditions at Camp

The Havdalah Society recognizes camp’s most committed annual supporters. The Havdalah Society celebrates those donors who make cumulative gifts of $1,800 or more to Camp Solomon Schechter annually.

Havdalah Society was introduced in 2020 to honor our most committed donors and the impact they have on camp. This society has grown quickly and your leadership has blown us away! As a result of this growth and your amazing generosity, we’ve increased the entry level from $1,000 when we began to $1,800 this year.

What is Havdalah?

Havdalah serves as a separation between Shabbat and the start of the new week. At camp, we love Shabbat so much that we turn Havdalah into a song session to savor the Shabbat feeling as long as possible. The name, “Havdalah Society,” alludes to the magical experience of living in “Jewish time” at camp.

To the donors of the Havdalah Society this year – Todah Rabah! Thank you!

Courtesies extended to Havdalah Society donors include:

  • Annual Havdalah Society events
  • Access to special Havdalah Society days on property during summer camp
