Camp Newman Shabbat
4088 Porter Creek Road, Santa Rosa, California
Shabbat is one of the most magical times at URJ Camp Newman. As a community, we gather together to sing, pray, eat, dance and celebrate our Jewish tradition amid the startling beauty of our Santa Rosa hills and the setting sun. It’s a powerful and tranformative evening – when our community feels the most ruach, or spirit, when the bonds between our campers grow even stronger, and when Shabbat as a practice comes alive. We invite you to be a part of it!
