RIVKIN CAMP SCHOLARSHIP
As parents of former campers as well as having worked on staff at Camp Harlam and Kutz Camp (Cantor and Rabbi respectively) we have seen the benefits of Jewish summer camp firsthand. However, the process of finding the right camp for your child can be daunting, as can its potential cost.
That’s why it’s with great excitement we announce that the Rivkin family has created and funded an endowment at Monmouth Reform Temple to help make it possible for your children to attend one of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) camps, HarlamKutzSci TechSix Point Sports, and Six Points Creative Arts
 
The endowment will enable scholarships up to 50% of the cost of a camp session. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship for your child(ren), please fill out the attached application form and return it to Stu Tuchband by December 15th. He has a box in our office or you can also email it to him as an attachment stuchband@comcast.net.
 
To learn more about this and other camp scholarship opportunities, parents are encouraged to join us at MRT’s Camp Discovery Day on Sunday, October 28th at 11 am.
 
We know that camping is one of the most impactful ways in which we can help our children love their Judaism! If you have questions about a particular camp, the process of enrollment or would like to speak with recent campers from our synagogue, please contact Cantor Clissold at cantorclissold@monmouthreformtemple.org
Looking forward to seeing your kids at camp!
Cantor Gabrielle Clissold, Rabbi Marc Kline and Magda Reyes
PS. If your child is considering Camp Harlam there is a taste of camp from October 20-21. This link has all the information. (This is soon!)

SOCIAL ACTION PROJECTS
MRT’S Gan Mazon / Garden of Plenty 
Our volunteers are now in the process of closing Gan Mazon for the 2018 season, having reached our goal of 2,000 lbs. harvested and delivered to JFCS in Asbury Park and Open Door in Freehold—2,006 lbs. to be exact. Beets, cabbage, collards and hot peppers were added this year to our garden. Jerry Korn, Michelle Nathanson* and Master Gardeners Semmes Brightman* and Denise Fredericks joined our volunteer crew.
As quickly as the 2018 season ends, preparation for the 2019 season will begin on Mitzvah Day, Sunday, October 14. Gan Mazon volunteering is MRT’S way to help feed families in need living in Monmouth County. The garden never has too many helpers. 
Best wishes,
David Levinsky
