Give an Israeli Child the Gift
of a Summer to Remember
For most Israeli children, summer means day camp: fun-filled, care-free days spent in company of their friends.
But for many parents from Russia and Ukraine, and other olim immigrants who are struggling to make ends meet, the high cost of day camp is a grave hardship—an unattainable dream.

Chamah is a vibrant international organization with thriving centers in Israel, Russia and the US enhancing the lives of tens of thousands members of the Russian-speaking Jewish Community.
Gan Chamah Day Camp is located on beautifully landscaped grounds on the Chamah Community Center in Kiryat Malachi, Israel. For each of the past eighteen years, one hundred and fifty happy children have attended Chamah Day Camp.
This year, we have raised the funds to grant full scholarships to eighty deserving children. Instead of spending the long, hot summer days roaming the street while their parents are at work, they will spend a fun-filled summer swimming, going on exciting trips, engaging in sports, doing arts and crafts and enjoying nutritious meals.
Knowing that their children are in a secure environment gives working parents much needed peace of mind.Under the watchful eyes of the dedicated staff, the children can thrive physically and emotionally. They learn about their rich Jewish heritage and traditions, many for the very first time.
