The Sisterhood's Elsie Adlman Camp Fund

For many years the Sisterhood's Elsie Adlman Camp Fund has helped children and senior citizens, who could otherwise not do so, enjoy a Jewish summer experience outside the City.  In this time of great economic need, it is more important than ever to be able to help change their lives for a month... a week... or even a day.  Please help us by responding as generously as you can.  Click here to donate.
