We strive to: Educate Jews and the general public about Jewish diversity. Build networks of global Jewish leaders. Strengthen diverse Jewish communities around the world. Encouraging those who would like to be part of the Jewish people.
Camp Be’chol Lashon is the only summer camp focused on Jews as a multicultural people. It is located in the San Francisco Bay Area and is attended by campers, ages 8-18, from all over the United States and the world. It teaches about global Jewish diversity, builds community leaders, and inspires a love of Judaism.
The majority of Jews who fled various persecutions and immigrated to America and the Caribbean were largely from Eastern Europe, so people think of Jews as white. But, of course, Jews are a multicultural people who live all over the world, as you can see from our website.
If you are thinking about converting, we can offer some suggestions, but in the end it is such a personal journey. We recommend visiting different synagogues, taking classes, going to conferences/retreats, and talking to a variety of rabbis and others to see what resonates for you.
We are based in San Francisco, with regional directors in the East (New York), South (Atlanta), Southwest (Oklahoma City), Midwest (Milwaukee), Canada (Toronto) and Africa (Uganda).
