Judaism in the camp

The approach to Judaism within camp is open and pluralist. We accept all streams and styles of Judaism; from the cultural to the traditional to the religious, and it is important for us that everyone can feel at home, no matter what their background or level of observance is. To ensure this, the kitchen of the camp is kosher, and we observe Shabbat according to Jewish tradition in the public spaces of camp. There are many campers get to experience their first Shabbat ever while at Szarvas.
