"I had no Jewish upbringing at all." - Why Harold Grinspoon & JCamp 180 support Jewish summer camp

“Seeing the enjoyment, the pleasure, the experience, and the camaraderie of these children involved with their Jewish community - it's really amazing. I had none of that as a child. I had no Jewish upbringing at all.”
- Harold Grinspoon
