Camp Am Yisrael (Newborns through 3.5 years old with Accompanying Adult)

Sunday Camp Am Yisrael Update

With the help of some devoted Camp Am Yisrael parents, we are in the process of building this program.  Pizza!  Prayers! Pajamas! was born out of this process.  In addition to joining us for our weekly Camp Am Yisrael sessions, we hope that you will join us on Fri Jan 11 from 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.  Here is a link to sign up and learn more about the program:

Summary of the Camp Am Yisrael Program:

Camp Am Yisrael is a one-hour get together that takes place for our youngest synagogue participants. Our main goal is to make the synagogue feel like home for the children who attend. All Camp Am Yisrael kids need to have a caregiver; either a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend of the family or babysitter. A secondary goal is to help build community among the families who attend. Through arts and crafts, learning-through-play, stories, songs, prayer, playing with a plush Torah and a little nosh, we look forward to celebrating Judaism as a Camp Am Yisrael community in Room 2 from 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. on Sundays. We meet every week that Am Yisrael's School of Jewish Studies is in session.


This program is Free of Charge for Am Yisrael Members and families enrolled in Banner Pre-School

$18 for the entire school year for non-Am Yisrael members

Complimentary High Holiday Tickets for Tot Programming held at Doubletree in Skokie
