Dor L’Dor Israel Experience

Dor L’Dor 2022: 4+ weeks in Israel!

At The Cohen Camps, we strongly believe that direct experience of Israel — the opportunity to create a personal relationship with the people, land and heritage of Israel — is integral to the way each person develops their Jewish identity, values and character. After all, supporting the founding of the State of Israel is part of our founding vision. We begin to help our campers cultivate this connection with Israel from the moment they arrive at camp.

At camp, bunks carry the names of Israeli cities and towns; many building names honor Zionist heroes; exuberant Israeli dancing enlivens Shabbat; our cohort of Israeli counselors add Hebrew and Israeli culture to our bunks and activities.

Then the capstone of the camper experience, the Dor L’Dor Leadership Program, guides our oldest campers through Israel itself, many for the very first time. After completing 10th grade, our teens join peers from all three Cohen Camps—Pembroke, Tel Noar, and Tevya—for an intensive four weeks in Israel, a trip that is physically, spiritually, and intellectually stimulating.

We have even offered a Dor L’Dor Israel Trip for Adults in some years!

Campers relish the weekly Shabbat updates sent in by the Dor L’Dor travelers. This program and its young-adult role models help even our youngest campers discover the deep value in connecting with the historical, religious and cultural aspects of the State of Israel.

“Dor L’Dor was a life altering experience for our daughter. When we spoke with her on the phone we have NEVER heard her sound more excited, engaged, enthusiastic and happy IN HER LIFE. THANK YOU for providing this wonderful program.”
