Community Briefs: Inclusion Grants, Kosher Certifications


Camp Harlam Rectangle.jpgCamp Harlam Receives Inclusion Grant
Camp Harlam in Kunkletown was among 13 camps receiving a total of $2.6 million from the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s Yashar Initiative to increase accessibility for campers and staff with disabilities.

The initiative funded by The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation is responsible for improvements to accessibility and inclusion at camp, providing money for capital improvements, professional development, staff training, research and evaluation. The programs support those with autism spectrum disorder, as well as those with intellectual, developmental, physical and sensory disabilities.

Each recipient committed to increasing their total campers with disabilities to at least 5% of the total camper population.

This is the third round of grantees through the Yashar Initiative. Since the program launched in 2019, FJC has awarded more than $8 million in grants to 39 camps.
Also receiving grants in the latest round were NJY Round Lake Camp in Milford, Pennsylvania; Neil Klatskin JCC Camp in Tenafly, New Jersey; and JCC Camp Ruach in Bridgewater, New Jersey.
