Tavor is Bringing Light into the World
By Amit Weitzer, Executive Director
" Even these darkest, shortest days of winter are warmed and brightened by all of the ways that Camp Tavor is bringing light into the world. "

Rosh Report
To New Beginnings
Sarah Pincus, Rosh Tavor 2020, shares her hopes for Camp Tavor in the new year...

" Tavor is the place of my happiest memories and I can’t wait to again be a part of creating that for others. "

Nathan's Notebook
Holiday Reflections. Camp and my kvutsah!
"When I started camp at the age of 13, I didn’t understand what I was getting myself into. Now, closer to 23 than 22, I still can’t really claim to. But I can latch on to a feeling, constant throughout my time at camp, and roaring louder this week than it ever has before: pride. Not even pride in myself, but pride in my kvutsah."
