A summer season came to a rewarding close this week for Jewish children from Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Ulyanovsk and other outlying cities on the Volga River.
The campers enjoyed an American style summer camping experience, made unusual by the dramatic Jewish rites-of-passage that many of the children participated in: 9 britot, a bar-mitzvah celebration, a pidyon ha-ben, and a bat-mitzvah celebration for many of the girls.
The camp was sponsored by Ohr Avner and the Avi-Chai Foundation.
