Building our heritage

We’re raising money to build a new home for our Russian speaking Jewish community of Chicago. To make this dream a reality, In addition to our main 3 Million dollar campaign with 83% raised, we’ve set up this campaign with a goal of $100,000.

With your help, Heritage Russian Jewish Congregation can reach this goal and create a beautiful spiritual, social and educational Center for our families - for you!

Big things are built one brick at a time. Help us meet our goal! Donate $1,000 to sponsor a brick, or any amount will make a difference!

Summer Camp

Camp Nageela Midwest Mission.

Founded in 2007 as part of the national Nageela camping movement

Camp Nageela Midwest has quickly risen to the top, in the world of Jewish overnight camps. Boys and girls grades 3-11 find their place in Camp Nageela Midwest through the warm and welcoming environment that is felt from the moment they step onto the camp grounds. Our gender specific experience creates a low-pressure environment that allows the joyous and adventurous spirit of our campers to shine with all its strength.

All meals and snacks in Camp Nageela Midwest are strictly kosher and a traditional Shabbat is celebrated and enjoyed by our campers - regardless of their observance at home. Nageela Midwest campers return home after a camp session with a rejuvenated sense of Jewish pride. 

Nageela Midwest staff members are chosen for their passion in encouraging children to have fun and develop their individual strengths. Our staff practice Traditional Jewish observance and live by its values of caring, warmth, and joy of living. Campers connect with their staff and develop lifelong role models and friends.

Camp Nageela Midwest is a project of the national Nageela Joyfully Jewish Experiences camping movement. Nageela! Bringing fun to your summer, joy to your life!

Camp Nageela Midwest is located in Marshall, IN
