Raising the Bar: Announcing Perlman’s New Mission and Vision
For almost 65 years, the mission of Perlman Camp has been to create transformational Jewish summer camp experiences. We are proud of the community that we create every summer, our rich history and our Perlman Camp traditions. It is in this spirit that we announce our updated mission statement.
Perlman Camp is a warm and welcoming community that fosters transformational and enriching summer experiences. The Jewish values that camp instills and the everlasting bonds that are formed sustain campers and staff throughout their lifetimes.
As the new mission statement indicates, we are focused on delivering outcomes based on our Jewish core values. We are extremely intentional in how we bring them to life every day at Perlman Camp and we are excited to share them with you.
- Sacred Community – Kehilah Kedosha: By building and welcoming inclusive communities, we create caring places where each individual is valued and connected to one another.
- Jewish Journey – Nefesh Yehudi: By being open to self-exploration, discovery and expressing our Judaism, we challenge ourselves to make Judaism personally meaningful and relevant.
- Love of Israel – Ahavat Yisrael: By deepening our understanding of the Israel’s people, land and history, we foster a passion for Israel as our Jewish homeland.
- Jewish Values – Tikkun Middot: By participating in Jewish life and embracing the diversity of our Jewish communities, we create a feeling of commitment and belonging to the greater Jewish people.
- Jewish peoplehood/Jewish Culture – K’lal Yisrael: By participating in Jewish life and embracing the diversity of our Jewish communities, we create a feeling of commitment and belonging to the greater Jewish people.
We believe that the updated mission and Jewish core values authentically represent not only our history, but also the future of Perlman Camp.
