On July 31, 2002, Camp JCA Shalom lost a member of its family. Marla Bennett was one of the American victims in the bombing of the Hebrew University cafeteria. Marla grew up at Camp JCA Shalom as a camper, CIT counselor, unit head and during Summer 2001 she was the program director. During her time here at Camp JCA Shalom, she touched the lives of thousands of campers and staff.
In Marla's memory, we created the Marla Bennett Israel Discovery Center and Garden, a year round hands-on learning center that teaches about Judaism, Israel, organic farming and gardening, nature, environmental awareness, and more! Your donation will honor Marla's memory and helps the Shalom Institute fulfill its environmental commitments and goals of Tikkun Olam.
Jerry’s Place, the Dining Hall Renewal Project, is dedicated to the memory of Jerry Ringerman, Director of Camp JCA from 1960- 1974. Jerry Ringerman’s selfless devotion to Camp JCA at Barton Flats and Malibu became an inspiration to thousands of campers and staffers. To say that Jerry was a “role model” “mentor” and “mensch” to thousands is not enough. He was a unique and gifted man whose true legacy lives on at Camp JCA Shalom and in many other places through the people he guided and the effect they have on others today.
Support our Jerry’s Place campaign by buying a TILE that will permanently reside in our renewed dining hall. Personalize your own message on a tile which will be displayed for all JCAers and Shalom Institute guests to enjoy. Write a personal message about Camp JCA today, about your JCA memories, about Jerry Ringerman and his impact on Camp JCA, or even simply your family name.
Tiles are available in two sizes. To BUY a tile, click on “Donate Now” button below
Together with a dedicated group of alumni, supporters and friends, the Shalom Institute recently invested more than $1.5 million for capital improvements, including a redesign of the dining hall, bridge repairs, bathroom upgrades, a waterslide at the pool, a horseback riding center, organic farming center, and new ropes course elements. However, we still need to refurbish, upgrade and rebuild a number of camp facilities.
