Social Justice Kallah

November 17-19, 2017

Better known as SJK, this meaningful weekend retreat embodies our year-round focus on Tikkun Olam through experiential programming.

  • Meet new people and see your friends from NFTY, Camp, Israel and Mitzvah Corps
  • Enjoy a fun, interactive Saturday night activity
  • "Unplug" from the stress of the semester and enjoy the peace and beauty of the outdoors at camp
  • Sing your heart out at song sessions
  • Participate in social justice-themed programs, workshops and activities
  • Experiment with different approaches to prayer and spirituality through teen led services


In the Talmud, there's a phrase "Kol yisrael arevim zeh bazeh," meaning all of Israel are responsible for each other. In the wake of the fires that devastated Camp Newman, and knowing how many in our NFTY community were affected, we are planning an activity to come together so we can talk, support and comfort each other.


Check out our New Members Packet, a great resource if you are new to the NFTY experience!
