Disconnect to Reconnect: The Unique Position of Camp as a Screen-Free, Immersive Space

Disconnect to Reconnect: The Unique Position of Camp as a Screen-Free, Immersive Space jemerman

At the Jewish summer camp I attended in my youth, we created a sacred moment for our closing-night ritual. After we finished our campfire singing, we'd look up at the stars. Campers today live very different lives. In a post-pandemic world, they have endured screen overload.

Why This Summer is Different

Why This Summer is Different jemerman

For as long as I can remember, I've been in love with Israel. I've been fascinated by that small country with such rich meaning and history.

Making a Jewish Ritual for my Divorce

Making a Jewish Ritual for my Divorce jemerman

In the weeks leading up to my civil divorce, I delved into Jewish tradition to see how I could mark it Jewishly. I'd been married under a chuppah with the exquisite blessings of our tradition; simply marking my divorce in the Cook County courthouse was not going to suffice.

Creating Community on World Refugee Day

Creating Community on World Refugee Day jemerman

June 20 marks World Refugee Day, which honors the experiences of refugees and celebrates their contributions to their communities and the world. The UN Refugee Agency reports that more than 114 million individuals were forcibly displaced by the end of 2023, with more than 35 million identified as refugees.
