What Parents are saying

Thank you so much for this very generous gift for my two daughters. It means so, so much for both kids and parents. Every child deserves to experience a fun summer, however, finances often get in the way. That is why this incentive is truly life-changing for children and their families. It gives kids an amazing opportunity to learn about Jewish culture (I came from the former Soviet Union and I couldn't teach it to my kids) while having fun and building lifelong friendships.

Thank you again for your generosity!

I wanted to express my genuine gratitude that my children have received a free week in our local Jewish day camp from your program.

While we have had enough finances to sustain us through the years, we never have extra money for fun activities for the children. We have certainly never been able to afford any type of summer camp. I thought my children would grow up never having had the "camp experience," and I'm truly overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of this program and the donors who have felt it important enough to give Jewish children an experience some of them would never be able to have otherwise.

Thank you so much. Super grateful and humbled by the generosity of this program's funders.

Living outside of Israel teaches one that being Jewish is not something you should or could take for granted. It is something you have to work on, teach, and experience. It does not matter what stream of Judaism you follow, one thing is for sure; community and good values are important for everyone.

With your support, we are able to give our kids the necessary social and spiritual connection during the summer.

I have been wanting to send my daughter to a Jewish summer day camp for a while now but was concerned that I wouldn't be able to afford it. Your Jewish Day Camp Incentive Program really helped me seal the deal of first-time summer camp for my younger daughter. I am SO grateful. Thank you

Thank you again for your generosity!

Thank you so very much for this beautiful gift!

We are very grateful for our son's first Jewish day camp experience...  With the current state of our nation and our world, it is so important to keep him involved in Jewish youth groups.

Thank you to all of the donors who are helping to fund this incentive.  It means a great deal to the parents, the children, and the community at large.

Thank you so much for your incentives program. My daughter loved the camp that you referred us to. It was so much fun.  She connected to Judaism in a very accepting environment, found an amazing Jewish community, and made a bunch of friends in the process.

She can't wait to go back next summer!
