Many campers have chosen to include CYJ Midwest in their Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration as part of a special mitzvah project.
We are very grateful to the campers who have included Camp Young Judaea Midwest in their Bar or Bat Mitzvah. For example, one camper designated the Miriam Soboroff-Dena Steinberg Scholarship Fund as his mitzvah project and asked friends and family to make a donation in honor of his Bar Mitzvah. He added this note to his invitation: “I feel that CYJ Midwest is my home away from home and every kid that wants to should be able to go to camp. I hope that I can help to make that happen.”
Another camper designated the Area of Greatest Need program as her mitzvah project. She participated in Chicago’s “Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon” and asked friends and family to sponsor her by making a donation to camp.
If you’re interested in any of these options and have questions, email Kevin Friduss, Marketing & Communications Manager here. We are happy to discuss ideas and options with you!
