Our goal is to strengthen Jewish identity, continuity, and our youths' relationships to the people and land of Israel. Whether is it through a trip to Israel or a session at a Jewish residential camp, Congregation Or Ami encourages all teens to "Do Jewish" during the summer!
Rabbis Paul and Julia (and their families) lead a delegation of 40 people each summer to Camp Newman, a Jewish summer in Santa Rosa, CA. We believe that Jewish summer camp is one of the best ways to build self-esteem, create new friendships and inspire children to love being Jewish. Additionally, Or Ami sends young people to many area camps including Camp Hess Kramer, Gindling Hilltop Camp, Camp Alonim, JCA Shalom, and Camp Ramah. We guide families to scholarships that help underwrite the costs of camp.
