Camping as Sacred Time

By David Berkman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2007

The author reveals that the Reform movement is facing a particular challenge of late because of the difference in Jewish culture and community at camp versus in the camper's home synagogue. He urges that this gap needs to close and expresses the importance of the benefits of camp for the Reform movement, including the instillation of love and respect for Judaism among youth and the commitment to Jewish continuity.
