Join Herzl in the City’s SchmoozeFest and get every child to camp!


You create a joyful, schmooze-filled summer for hundreds of young people when you donate to the Herzl in the City fundraising drive!

Your sponsorship goes directly to camp scholarships, key security upgrades, and expanding our Israeli Camper program to bring 24 campers and Ozrim from Sderot and surrounding communities this summer. It is 13th summer of this unique experiential education program and it’s never been more important–for both our American and Israeli campers. Click here to hear directly from Israeli dad about what this program means to his family. You are the reason his child can “just be a kid” at camp this summer!

We’ll close the drive on May 18 and celebrate what we accomplish when we come together for the campers with SchmoozeFest 2024!

Join chairs Revital and Michael Furman, for a night of schmoozing and schtick! While we’re schmoozing, meet new Herzl staff! Grab a beer with your buddies, new and old, at the Beerkurim Beer Garden! Sing a camp song duet with beloved Rosh Shira Flip Frisch by the fire. Taste a twist on your favorite camp foods! Games, swag and more! All during one fun night of schtick and celebration surrounded by long-time and brand-new friends who love Jewish camp.

Join us on Saturday, May 18 at 8 pm CT at Oak Ridge Country Club!
All donations include entry for up to 3 Schmoozers. Want to bring more Schmoozers? Let us know.

New and increased gifts are MATCHED by BMO Harris Bank, our Matching Sponsor for the 9th year running!
