What happens when you are walking down the street in Tel Aviv and someone asks you how you are feeling, and you are feeling great? You answer, “Sababa”!

What happens when a collaboration of Jewish organizations put their heads together to create a new innovative Jewish education initiative? The answer, “Camp Sababa of course!”

Camp Sababa is a new innovative Jewish day camp experience for first – fourth graders that was piloted this past summer as part of the JCC of Metropolitan Detroit day camp offerings. The program was a unique collaborative effort by the Jewish Community Center, Tamarack Camps, Temple Beth El, Temple Israel, Temple Kol Ami, and Temple Shir Shalom and supported through a Berman Family Jewish Education grant from Metropolitan Detroit Jewish Federation. It was a place where children and their families came together to learn, celebrate and enjoy Jewish life.
This session will describe what happens when like-minded Jewish organizations break down barriers and come together to expand time and space for Jewish learning.
