Israeli Staff in American Jewish Summer Camps- The view of the camp director

By Ezra Kopelowitz, Minna F. Wolf

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), 2003

This research report describes three strategies that directors of American Jewish summer camps adopt vis-à-vis the Israeli staff who work in their camps. Each strategy comes with a distinct set of practices with both practical and ideological implications. Practically speaking, each strategy involves basic issues such as where a person eats, sleeps, socializes and works. Ideologically speaking each strategy represents a distinct understanding of the relationship between Israeli and American Jews, as it comes to expression in the life of the summer camp.
