Federation’s OneWorld: Davis Family Tolerance Project sponsored an incredible week of summer day camp for 50 children from the Max Fischer Boys & Girls Club and Marjorie Fischer Boys & Girls Club.

The kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs joined 250 campers at Camp Shalom, a program of Federation’s partner the Mandel JCC with locations in Palm Beach Gardens and Boynton Beach.

From July 10-14, 2017, all 300 children participated in camp experiences such as sports, science, Israeli culture, drama and swimming, and they went on field trips to Lion Country Safari, Boomers and Flying Panda.

Most of all, the program also provided all of the children with a greater understanding of communities they may not encounter very often.


The week was so impactful for some Camp Shalom campers, it inspired them to do tikkun olam (repairing the world) the weekend after camp ended. Campers Davin, Ayla, Jaden, Jenna, Bronson and Roman joined together for their first lemonade stand – and they donated a portion of their sales toward school supplies for the Boys & Girls Club!

OneWorld: Davis Family Tolerance Project is Federation’s communitywide effort promoting tolerance, diversity and the Jewish value of chesed (“kindness”) through inspiring programs. The goal is to encourage an actively compassionate and caring Palm Beach County.
