The Jacobs blog



Jacobs Camp has always been such a special place to me for as long as I can remember. I am sure you can imagine my excitement when 6 year old me got to go for my first summer at Jacobs. Even though it was only for one night, I knew I had to go back the next summer immediately. I have returned to my home every summer since, making so many memories and friends along the way.

So, when I had to choose my tzedek project for my Bat Mitzvah, I immediately thought of Jacobs Camp. Jacobs has influenced me in so many positive ways from my Jewish values to making me a better person every day. I want to be able to share this experience with other Jewish kids to help them make lifelong memories as well.

My Bat Mitzvah Project is supporting The Jacobs Magic Fund. The Jacobs Magic Fund helps many kids come to Jacob’s each and every summer and supports camp as a whole. My hope is to help make it possible for more kids to share the Jacobs experiences and to help improve camp for everyone. Camp is something very important to me so to be able to share that with others is such a wonderful thing.

Please join me to support my bat mitzvah project and provide the opportunity for more kids to experience Jacobs’ Magic.
