Camp Superstarz, A Super Success

This past summer, Bergen County had a new exciting opportunity for girls. Camp Superstarz kicked off its inaugural summer with two weeks of amazing sports for girls entering grades 3 through 8.

Two Narratives from Yeshivat Noam’s First Tisha b’Av Program

As part of the Yeshivat Noam Tisha b’Av program, Middle School students delved into the symbolism and meaning of the day.

Tisha b’Av at Noam

While Am Yisrael awaits redemption, Ti­sha b’Av is the day we commemorate the sac­rifice of the Jewish people during this long exile.

Fair Lawn Jewish Day Camp

Bris Avrohom Fair Lawn Jewish Day Camp is entering its seventh year with a record num­ber of 300 campers who are all registered for the full 8-weeks of programs. They are under li­censed supervision and are having a wonderful, enjoyable summer with swimming, trips, arts and crafts, as well as lectures by professional instructors of supplementary activities.


Wrestling Camp as a Jewish Experience

In the world of Jewish sports, wrestling is unusual. The sport has no yeshiva league, nor an extensive network of institutions across the country like basketball does; and it stands out as the only true contact sport at Jewish schools.
