JCC seeks Tucson host families for Israeli camp counselors

The Tucson Jewish Community Center summer camp (“Camp J”) and the Weintraub Israel Center are seeking host families for two Israeli counselors who will be working at Camp J this summer.

Yael Weizner, 19, has a passion for dance and painting. She comes from a non-religious background and although she celebrates holidays with her family, she does not keep kosher or Shabbat.

Shiran Geffen, 21, loves swimming, canoeing, surfing, kayaking and arts and crafts. She does not keep kosher or Shabbat.

Host families are asked to provide room and board as well as transportation to and from the JCC. Counselors will attend camp Monday through Friday. All host families will receive a $50 credit for camp per session of hosting (for more information, contact Scott Zorn at 299-3000).

Hosts are needed now through Friday, Aug. 5 (two to three weeks per family). For more information on becoming a host family, contact the Weintraub Israel Center at 577-9393, ext. 133 or [email protected].
