J-Sport Israel offers its participants a series of year long sports, educational and cultural events aimed at strengthening the Jewish self-identity of participants, developing their leadership qualities, challenging stereotypes and fostering the further interest to stay in touch. The main feature of the project J-Sport Israel Summer camp is a central event of ongoing year-long activities, the culmination of activities of the previous year and kick-off for the entire year of new programs.
The project is to be carried out in three major steps:
1. Pre-camps for future participants, with an extensive Jewish educational component, in order to maximize the efficiency of the camp program and assess the leadership potential of future participants.
2. Camp in Israel (12 days). The camp includes a series of sports, educational and cultural events and offers its participants:
- Dynamic camp program by sports and educational madrichim
- Professional sports trainings and contests by leading Israeli coaches
- Informal educational sessions by experienced tutors and facilitators
- Guided-tours across the country with in-depth explanation of the significance of the visited places for the Jewish people and history of the State of Israel
3. Follow-up year-long activities, aimed at giving the young sportsmen an opportunity to discover and explore their own path to the Jewish world and sports excellence together with like-minded peers.
A pilot project took place in summer 2012. Over 100 Israeli teenagers of Russian-speaking background participated in the first Jewish Sport camp in Israel. The unique educational program of the camp was developed by the professional staff especially for J-Sport Israel.
Following the great success of the pilot, in summer 2013, J-Sport in Israel will open its doors to an additional 100 Russian speaking Israeli sportsmen from all regions of Israel.
