A Study of Russian Jews and their Attitudes towards overnight Jewish Summer Camp

By Abby Knopp

Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC), February 2011

The Foundation for Jewish Camp, with the support of the Genesis Philanthropy Group, commissioned a study of Russian-speaking parents to begin to learn about their attitudes towards Jewish overnight camp. The goals of the research were to: Provide a snapshot of Russian-speaking Jewish parents (RSJPs) in North America – the demographics, the extent of their immersion in either being Jewish or Russian (through culture, activities, language, affiliation, etc.), or both; Learn whether cultural or affiliation trends are dependent on regions; Identify which summer activities RSJ parents have chosen for their children or what they are doing with their children currently; Understand the level of interest in Jewish overnight camp, as well as where parents get their information about summer camps and other options; Identify the types of activities RSJ parents are interested in for their children and what the motivations and barriers might be in making these decisions.
