It’s fall…and change is in the air. The evenings are finally cooler and the trees are beginning to burst forth in color!  It’s fall…and lives are changing too!

Many friends gathered at Camp Akiva last month for the SUMMIT retreat. Seeing a friend only a couple of times a year is special, and that’s what it’s like for some of the teens that came on the retreat. What a treasured time to witness renewing of old friendships and the making of new ones. We learned what God’s word says about friendships, and how our relationship with Jesus can transform us forever!


In this season of change, we celebrate the transformation that all of our donors and volunteers make possible: lives, hearts, memories, attitudes, and futures are changing…because of you.

“As iron sharpens iron, so one friend sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
