Even though summer is over, many families are already thinking about the often overwhelming process of choosing the right camp for their child. The Cohens of Short Hills, along with hundreds of other families in the Greater MetrowWest community, have One Happy Camper NJ and camp expert Tracy Levine to thank for helping them navigate through the process and find the right Jewish overnight camp for their children.
"We had checked out several other Jewish camps before finally deciding on Crane Lake," said Koby, age 12. "I knew right away that I had made a great decision. Camp truly feels like home away from home! I love the connection I made with my friends and counselors, including those coming from Israel."
The Sunday before Rosh HaShanah, 1,043 people blew Shofar in unison at The Great Shofar Blowout and set a new Guinness World Record. Michael and his family were part of the historic record-breaking event sponsored by The Partnership to build unity while creating the Largest Shofar Ensemble to date.
"The Great Shofar Blowout was another great opportunity to bring Jews in our community together, especially for such a fun and meaningful purpose. Let our voice be heard, in New Jersey, in Israel and all over the universe!"
Who doesn't want to connect with someone who knows all the good places to go and fun things to do? This is the concept behind the Jewish Family Concierge for Montclair and the surrounding area.
"I had no local outlet geared towards children for my Jewish interests until I met your Jewish Family Concierge. She keeps me and families like mine connected to each other and to a Jewish community that clearly cares about us."
