The celebration of Camp Harlam's 60th year was an amazing success. More than 12 events and projects, thousands of alumni and friends engaged, more than $1,100,000 raised (as of December 2018) to support camp, the renovation and dedication of the Arie Gluck Chapel in the Woods, the support of an exceptional Planning Committee and event volunteers, and much more.

On February 10, 2019, 1958 Club donors at the Rikudiah Judge, Zimriah Judge, and Captain Color War levels joined some of our lay and professional leaders for a celebratory dinner at the renowned Israeli restaurant, Zahav, in Philadelphia. Our thanks to Lee Klein Erlichman, Kim & Joel Feller, Julie & Dan Fuchs, Tracy & George Gordon, Rabbi Rachel Hertzman & Jackie Perlmeter, Rabbi Elisa Koppel, Hyla & David Rosenberg, Cindy Rozenberg, Karen Rozenberg & Doug Berman, Sandy (Rozenberg) Sadove, Pam & Robert Saltzburg, Rosanne & David Selfon, Bettyruth Walter, and Linda & Jim Wimmer for being a part of this wonderful occasion. Enjoy some of the photos displayed that evening commemorating the impact of our Harlam@60 efforts, and read Lisa David's remarks delivered at the gathering.
Camp Harlam's Executive Director, Aaron Selkow, and others share a series of writings that explore the stories of prominent leaders that have helped to establish, grow and sustain Harlam's success during the last 60 years.
"For sixty years, Camp Harlam has thrived as a place for campers and staff to come together and enjoy extraordinary opportunities for connection, Jewish identity and culture, programs and traditions, skill-development, and personal growth. If a film was to be made of Harlam, it would be full of color, humor, love, ritual, and spirit." [Read more]

Thank you to the many friends and families that attended our Book Launch event on December 2, 2017 in Philadelphia!
As part of Harlam@60, we created an unbelievable exhibit in the Martin S. & Estelle Rozenberg Welcome Center to honor camp’s history. While the Gallery has opened (during the Anniversary Weekend), we are still seeking your mementos to be a part of this archival collection. Click here for more details and information on how to submit items.
Looking back to 1958
Thanks to the generosity of the Rozenberg family, we are thrilled to be able to share this video clip taken during Harlam's inaugural summer of 1958. Rabbi Martin and Estelle Rozenberg were honored in June 2018 with the dedication of a beautifully renovated Welcome Center (where you will find the amazing new Harlam@60 Gallery) in their names. To learn more about Martin's incredible contributions to the founding and growth of URJ Camp Harlam, please click here.
