                  envisioned an ongoing effort to “recapture the emotionalism of
                  Judaism,” and “begin a journey toward developing a variety of
                  ideas to encourage congregational participation” in a lively and        Danny Maseng

Camp was Great – More Fun Ahead!
How can Camp Beth Shalom be over when it seems like it just began? Our second
annual five-week summer program that concluded July 18 was a great success! The
children enjoyed the Funky Mama concert, pony rides, bubble activities and Wacky
Bananas inflatable jumping fun. Over 40 young campers played in the pools,
enjoyed the misting tree and sprinklers and loved the art projects and picnics.

Soon it will be time for nursery school to begin, with visiting day August 27,
and classes starting August 28. During the school year the children will learn
about the Jewish holidays and enjoy getting ready for Shabbat each week. The
week’s Parsha will come alive for our three and four-year olds with Miss Susie
Blackman. Children of all ages love their Shabbat party and singing with Hazzan
Menes and look forward to time with the rabbis when Rabbi Cohen and Rabbi
Katz come into their classrooms to read a story and visit with Beth Shalom’s
youngest students. Some of the special activities planned for the year include:
Paul Messner Puppets, Jim Cosgrove concerts, Wacky Bananas, Laughing Matters
and LuLuBelle the Clown, to name a few.

There are still a few spots open in some age groups so call Judy Jacks Berman for
more information if you have a child age 18 months to 5 years old.
