Over the course of the last year, Camp Laurelwood and PJ Library, powered by the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, partnered to connect Shoreline Jewish families with one another and bring them more Jewish programming. The “Pathway to Jewish Experiences” series, made possible in large part thanks to a generous grant from PJ Library and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, culminated in our first ever PJ Library Family Camp Weekend Retreat that hosted PJ Library families from Greater New Haven, including Old Saybrook, Madison, Hamden and beyond. Families connected around Shabbat blessings, Havdalah, nature walks, canoeing, kosher meals and so much more. Parents and kids alike enjoyed connecting as a family, making new friends and enjoying the beauty of Shabbat in a low barrier and inclusive Jewish summer camp setting. This is expected to be the first of many opportunities to participate in a PJ Library Weekend Retreat and we hope you will join us next time!
