Mifgash means encounter in Hebrew.  This day camp for teens aims to interweave Israeli and American teens during eight-ten days of bus adventures through-out the Bay Area.  Whether riding roller-coasters, combing beaches, exploring new technology or climbing the steps of Coit Tower, teens bond & grow their Jewish identity.


Midrasha retreats are the glue of our program.  Teens spend a Shabbat weekend in community meeting new Jewish friends from all over the Bay Area.  Enjoying nature with hikes, campfires and star-filled Havdalah celebrations.  After a weekend relaxing in pajamas, CCM teens only want more!

The Hamsa Fund:

(The East Bay's Jewish Teen Philanthropy Board) empowers teens to "be the change we want to see in the world."  Through monthly meetings, teens learn the 4-1-1 of philanthropy and tzedakah (justice), in order to choose a cause, raise money, and pick organizations to support through grant funds.
