       NONEMicrosoftInternetExplorer4 The history of educational 
       summer camps in American Reform Judaism. Reform Judaism is
       not the only religious community in America to make the 
       summer camp experience a vital part of a faith community's
       effort to impart its values and beliefs to its adolescents,
       but perhaps no group relied more on summer camp as an 
       adjunct to home and community for this purpose. Summer 
       camp became an important part of Reform group identity, a 
       bulwark against the attraction of assimilation into the 
       greater society and mere nominal Judaism. These essays, 
       which commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding
       of the first Reform Jewish educational camp in the United 
       States (Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute [OSRUI], in 
       Oconomowoc, Wisconsin) cover a wide range of topics 
       related to both the Reform Judaism movement and the 
       development of the Reform Jewish camping system in the 
       United States. Donald M. Splansky's chapter on "Prayer at 
       Reform Jewish Camps" documents changes in prayer services 
       that took place both at OSRUI and in the Reform movement 
       in general; Michael Zeldin's "Making the Magic in Reform 
       Jewish Summer Camps" describes the educational 
       philosophies employed at many camps and analyzes their 
       effectiveness; and Jonathan D. Sarna's "The Crucial Decade
       in Jewish Camping" explains how social, political, and 
       cultural conditions paved the way for the Reform camping 
       movement. Contributors: Judah M. Cohen, Rabbi Hillel 
       Gamoran, Michael M. Lorge, Jonathan D. Sarna, Rabbi Donald
       M. Splansky, Michael Zeldin, Gary P. Zola
