Rise Together

Making summer 2021 happen at nonprofit Jewish Camps across North America was harder than any of us could have imaged.

But camp staff and lay leaders did it.

To capture this spirit, JCamp 180 commissioned Alan Goodis and Elana Arian to write a song. We invited day and overnight camps to participate in this special project.

This is "Rise Together."

You can find the Rise Together score here to use at your camp.

A special thanks to Alan Goodis, Elana Arian, and all the camps who participated in this project:
  • Camp Havaya
  • Camp Nageela Midwest
  • Mandel JCC J-Day Camps
  • URJ Creative Arts Academy
  • URJ Goldman Union Camp Institute

Who we are: JCamp 180 is a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF). Our goal is to significantly enhance the long-term effectiveness of nonprofit Jewish camps in North America. To meet this goal, we provide affiliated Jewish camps with consulting services, annual conferences, shared resources, professional development, and matching grant opportunities.
