Don't Pass-Over Pesach
Spring Camp 2011
Purim Carnival (Essex County/Morristown)
Where's Waldo and Where am I? (Essex County/Morristown)
Tsofim Fun Day (Ganei Yehudah)
Spending time with friends is even better when you are playing laser tag, arcade games, claw games, and winning prizes. This Winter, Ganei Yehudah ventured to Funtime America Clifton, NJ to spend time with our friends from Young Judaea. Being a part of Ganei Yehudah Young Judaea is the best way to meet kids in your area who are going to camp with you. We aren’t just sitting around talking; we are playing exciting games while learning about Israel, other Jewish Cultures, and being part of a community. Ganei Yehudah is a great way to do all these activities without having to go too far away!

Fall Camp 2010
Fall and Spring Camp are my favorite times of the year! There are fun activities, you get to meet new people, and see friends from the summer. It makes me so excited to return to camp in July!
On Friday night we eat the best shabbat meal because it includes apple turnovers (which are amazing!) On Saturday night, w
e had a pajama dance party and ate delicious ice cream. We even covered ourselves with shaving cream, and just had the best time. One example of an activity is Shabbadiyada - we got to make friendship bracelets, drink tea, and play on a huge blow up slide! One of my favorite parts of Fall Camp was region time, where we split up into different regions, learn cheers, and cheer for New Jersey (the best region!) The next best part is havdallah, when we say goodbye to Shabbat. We sing peaceful songs that are soft, and we just remember that Shabbat will come again next week. The weekend was just filled with amazing activities where we learn about Israel, being Jewish, and Zionism. We also learn about current events in Israel, why we should be proud to be Jewish, and learning our history in fun ways. We learn how to connect with our world.
