In this series, we take a deep dive into one Mitzvah at a time, exploring the traditional teachings about that mitzvah and applying the concept to our own lives. In this series on lashon hara (the laws of speech), we will use text study, discussion, and examples from students lives to explore the Jewish ideal of lashon hara, the practice of avoiding negative speech. How does Judaism teach us to speak, what do we do with negativity, and when and how can we say things which are… not exactly positive? Week 1: What is lashon hara? Lashon Hara is more than just “gossip,” it is negative speech. We will explore the definition of this term, learn about some examples from the Torah, and think about examples in our own lives, and consider the impact lashon hara can have. Week 2: So what can you say? We are surrounded by negative speech in movies, news, and our lives. In this session we will look at some contemporary examples, both from media and our lives, and evaluate them in terms of the 7 conditions necessary for relating negative information. Week 3: So what can I say? In this session, we will explore Jewish teachings on what one can say in place of lashon hara, and consider how these teachings might play out in scenarios from students’ lives. This session will equip students with alternatives to saying lashon hara. We will also act out the story of “Salty Soup” (a classic chofetz chayyim story), exploring it dramatically and also discussing its lesson. This will give students a “deep dive” into one classic and memorable example of lashon hara. read less

Check the website for more dates. For almost 70 years, Camp JCA Shalom has been the “Camp for All Seasons.” Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, thousands of campers and staff experience the magic of Camp JCA Shalom. Camp’s vision of Tikkun Olam – creating a better world – is fulfilled through a positive Jewish living experience in the natural setting of the Shalom Institute. In our warm and supportive environment, campers experience living, learning, and playing in a group setting that encourages personal growth and self-discovery. We will create our Camp JCA magic in the beautiful Angeles National Forest at Gold Creek Center! Camp staff has been thorough and tenacious in search of the best location and Gold Creek Center is ideal for us. The beautiful, natural setting has the camp vibe we are used to. We will be able to maintain our cabin-centered approach to the camp experience with cabin-like housing units (that are air-conditioned and have attached bathrooms and showers!). Campers will experience the same Camp JCA Shalom culture and community that leads to making great friendships and experiencing life-changing moments. Camp remains a safe place for your child to grow and learn and have fun. The campus is secure on a private mountain road and we will not be sharing the site with another group as in most of the other locations that were considered. We will have security on-site as we did in Malibu. Gold Creek Center is beautifully tucked away at the foot of the magnificent mountains of the Angeles National Forest, just 20-30 minutes from the heart of the San Fernando Valley, Simi Valley, and Santa Clarita and less than 45 minutes from the Conejo Valley and West Los Angeles.

On GIVE, we visit an array of chesed organizations and experience firsthand what it means to be a responsible member of the Jewish people by helping those in need. From soup kitchens to medical clowning, greeting a Nefesh B’Nefesh flight to painting kindergartens in underprivileged communities, GIVErs are able to contribute to the many needs of those Jews living in Israel. While GIVE’s primary focus is volunteer work, touring and exposure to the land of Israel continues to be a major piece of the summer. When not engaged in chesed activities, GIVE takes you to many of the major tourist attractions throughout Israel. Some highlights include spending Shabbat in Tzfat, banana boating on the Kineret, hiking in the Judean desert and the Golan, mountain rappelling and floating in the Dead Sea. GIVE is an opportunity for girls to give back some of the good that they have received in their lives to those less fortunate. For an amazing summer that allows you to experience tangible Judaism in an incredibly exciting environment, while making friends from all over, sign up for NCSY’s GIVE! Don’t let this opportunity pass you by! read less
