The Havurah Plus Experience

After participating in Havurah, it’s time to return to Tel Yehudah to work, learn and lead. Havurah created amazing memories and relationships that will last a lifetime.  Somehow it just got better.  Introducing Havurah Plus!  This new program brings you back to Tel Yehudah to further your Havurah and TY experience.

This summer you will have the opportunity to work at camp in a junior staff role, share your experiences with younger campers, and earn a little money doing it or get a jump start on your Year Course payments.  You will share duties with many parts of camp, work with the operational staff, and plan programs for younger Havurah campers. You will also take part in special sessions and a seminar to help you develop ideas to share your Havurah experiences with campers and  your community back home.

Havurah Plus gives the opportunity for young adults to have an unparalleled work experience, lead and engage teens, earn money and have fun!
