About Kayitz Kef

 JCamp B’Ivrit is a four week program presented in collaboration with Kayitz Kef using the Language proficiency approach.  Campers will learn to speak Hebrew through enjoying all of the best if JCamp.

Kayitz Kef is built on the idea that proficiency in Modern Hebrew:

  • affirms individual Jewish identity and a collective sense of Jewish peoplehood
  • opens the door to Jewish life and culture, the study of Jewish texts, and appreciation for the breadth of Jewish learning
  • deepens connections with Israel – its people, culture and history.

Kayitz Kef is guided by the proficiency approach to second language acquisition – endorsed as the gold standard in foreign language instruction by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) – and adapts it to the unique setting of Jewish summer camp.
