Michael M. Zola, Judah M. Cohen. Reform Judaism is not the only religious group in America to make the summer camp experience a vital part of a faith community's effort to impart its values and beliefs to its adolescents, but perhaps no group relied more on summer camp as an adjunct to home and community for this purpose. Summer camp became an important part of Reform group identity, a bulwark against the attraction of assimilation into the greater society and mere nominal Judaism.

Contributors: Judah M. Lorge . Burton I. Cohen, author of Case Studies in Jewish School Management. A Place of Our Own us a rare and detailed glimpse into a world that has a great deal to teach institutional Judaism today. Lorge is an attorney with Laser, Pokorny, Schwartz, Friedman & Economos in Chicago, Illinois. He is a member of the national board of the Union for Reform Judaism and a vice-chair of its national camping commission.

Gary P. Zola offers an excellent overview of organized camping in the . OSRUI, founded in 1952, while not the first Jewish camp, represented the beginning. Zola offers an excellent overview of organized camping in the United States, which took off at the turn of the twentieth century, when Deweyan educational philosophy, increasing urbanization, and progressive reform efforts encouraged Americans to regain vigor, to "learn by doing," to rekindle the pastoral ideal, and to seek spirituality in natural settings. Jonathan D. Sarna follows with an essay that narrows the history of camping to Jewish camping, which began in 1893 with the establishment of Camp Lehman by the Jewish Working Girls' Vacation Society.

The history of educational summer camps in American Reform Judaism. Reform Judaism is not the only religious community in America to make the summer camp experience a vital part of a faith community's effort to impart its values and beliefs to its adolescents, but perhaps no group relied more on summer camp as an adjunct to home and community for this purpose. Summer camp became an important part of Reform group identity, a bulwark against the attraction of assimilation into the greater society and mere nominal Judaism.

These essays, which commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the first Reform Jewish educational camp in the United States (Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute [OSRUI], in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin) cover a wide range of topics related to both the Reform Judaism movement and the development of the Reform Jewish camping system in the United States. Donald M. Splansky’s chapter on “Prayer at Reform Jewish Camps” documents changes in prayer services that took place both at OSRUI and in the Reform movement in general; Michael Zeldin’s “Making the Magic in Reform Jewish Summer Camps” describes the educational philosophies employed at many camps and analyzes their effectiveness; and Jonathan D. Sarna’s “The Crucial Decade in Jewish Camping” explains how social, political, and cultural conditions paved the way for the Reform camping movement.
