  • A Talmidim Camper’s Take on Tevunah (Insightfulness)

    During the Opening Ceremony on June 10th, campers spoke about the four Jewish values that will guide Session One of 2018: tevunah  (insightfulness), shleimut  (wholeness), nimratzut  (passion), and sig sug  (personal growth). Talmidim camper Chloe Deitelzweig's beautiful words on tevunah resonated with the Jacobs Camp family; and we are pleased to share them with you.

  • A Message from Anna: April 2018

    Thanks to all of you who reached out after my last blog post during the winter. It was wonderful to hear from people I already know and to connect with lots of others I haven’t yet met – especially during the seasons when we don’t have many chances to be together in person. I appreciate the time you took to be in touch, the newsy updates you shared, and the chance to nurture our relationships, whether they’re decades old or fairly new!
