Camp Alonim is a program of the American Jewish University, an organization founded in 2007 when the Brandeis-Bardin Institute merged with the University of Judaism. Originally, Camp Alonim was a program of the Brandeis-Bardin Institute, which had a long and rich history. The Brandeis-Bardin Institute was a Jewish educational outreach resource for all Jews, whatever their age, wherever they may live throughout the world, whatever their own personal Jewish beliefs, and whatever the status of their Jewish identity. It sought "to touch and teach" Jews, to inspire them through their intellect and emotion, to enhance their connectedness to the Jewish people through the arts as well as academics, and to make a contribution to the advancement of Jewish culture as a means of Jewish identity. Camp Alonim is proud to continue Brandeis-Bardin's important legacy as part of the American Jewish University.
