Year-Round Events

UPDATE 3.12.20 – Shalom! Thank you for your interest in URJ Camp Newman events. Please note that we have made the difficult decision to move to a Virtual Shabbat for our Open House events. We’re sad to miss out on gathering in person but we look forward to seeing you on Facebook Live on March 13 at 6pm.

We will continue to assess the situation and will keep our community informed about the status of other upcoming events.
