Harlam Council Chair, Dan Fuchs

Council Purpose

The purpose of the Harlam Council is to engage lay leaders in supporting URJ Camp Harlam and to leverage their expertise and experience. We provide advice and feedback, shape strategy and major programs, and generate resources to enhance the operations and impact of camp. While our Council does not have legal fiduciary responsibilities, our work is vital to Harlam’s success. Empowered to be involved and impactful, the Council – as a group – is responsible for:

  • Shaping and protecting the mission, vision, and values of URJ Camp Harlam
  • Understanding Harlam’s resource needs and generating financial support to help meet those needs
  • Strengthening Harlam by connecting camp to its stakeholders and its stakeholders (current and future) to camp
  • Serving as a sounding board for the Pro Staff, particularly the Executive Director
  • Establishing and sustaining active lay leadership involvement through the Council, Committees, and Task Forces

As a group, the Council will develop goals, initiatives, and strategies to guide its work. We undertake this work in collaboration with the Pro Staff and Youth Program network of the Union of Reform Judaism.

If you would like more information about the Council, please contact Aaron Selkow (Executive Director) at ASelkow@URJ.org or 610-668-0423, ext. 1034.
