Lekhu Lakhem: Inspiring and Mentoring Directors


Lekhu Lakhem is a two-year Jewish education and mentoring program for overnight camp directors. The program prepares them to see themselves as Jewish educational leaders through exploring issues of educational philosophy, Jewish vision and educational leadership in multi-day seminars, text-based discussion sessions, individual mentoring, and a two-week seminar in Israel. All subjects are examined within the context of their camps and the issues that directors face in the course of their work.

Developed by the Jewish Community Center Association (JCCA) with the first two cohorts comprised of JCC camp directors, the program now includes representation from independent camps as well as JCC camps due to a groundbreaking partnership between JCCA and the Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC).
