Disconnect to Reconnect: The Unique Position of Camp as a Screen-Free, Immersive Space

Disconnect to Reconnect: The Unique Position of Camp as a Screen-Free, Immersive Space jemerman

At the Jewish summer camp I attended in my youth, we created a sacred moment for our closing-night ritual. After we finished our campfire singing, we'd look up at the stars. Campers today live very different lives. In a post-pandemic world, they have endured screen overload.

Why This Summer is Different jemerman

Making a Jewish Ritual for my Divorce jemerman
