Tiferet Bet

For the Dedicated Artist

Entering Grades 8-11 
4 Weeks
July 19 - August 14

Tiferet is one of the only residential camp programs in North America that combines study of the arts with a focus on Jewish themes and Jewish living. Campers also have the opportunity to experience all the fun of summer camp, including sports, swimming, climbing our 5-story Alpine Tower and high ropes course, and horseback riding!

Campers spend several hours each day working with our outstanding and talented arts specialists such as, Ohad Sha'altiel , Artistic Director and Visual Arts Specialist;  Michael Goldberg, Drama Specialist; and Margalit Sha'altiel, Dance Specialist. In addition, Tiferet counselors are specially selected for their experience in the arts as well as their desire and ability to work with talented campers.

When registering, please indicate your area of interest: Visual Arts, Drama, Dance, Digital Arts or Music. Space is limited in each specialty area.  Read a description of each studio here.

Tiferet Bet is designed for those of you with a real commitment to the arts. You will spend at least three hours each day in your chosen area, with additional time during the day when you can try a different studio or continue in your chosen area. Studio time will be spent on improving your skills individually and our gifted and supportive staff will help you find your own level of excellence. In addition, Tiferet Bet focuses on production in the performing arts and exhibition in the visual arts. The session closes with an extraordinary program to which we invite parents: The Tiferet Performances and Art Exhibition, held on Saturday afternoon before closing day - August 8th.


Tiferet Bet campers are asked to submit a brief summary of their interest and experience as well as a teacher's recommendation. Those forms are available below.

Tiferet Supplementary Application
Tiferet Bet Teacher's Recommendation

A note for vocalists...
Our music program is designed for anyone with a passion for music. Campers who consider voice to be their main instrument are welcome to join Music Studio. A vocalist in Music Studio would be practicing voice and vocal techniques during individual practice time and would be expected to musically and creatively contribute to group projects with voice. Vocalists who also play instruments are encouraged to bring their instruments to camp. In addition to the Supplementary Application and Teacher’s Recommendation Form, vocalists are required to interview via phone with our Music Specialist. Your interview will be scheduled after we receive those forms.

Why Choose Tiferet?
Though every unit at camp promises to be awesome, Tiferet provides a unique opportunity, combining three different elements into an amazing summer: Art, Camp, and Judaism. As a Tiferet camper, you'll be able to expand your skills and creativity within your own art focus. At the same time, you'll have multiple opportunities to explore other art forms and grow as an artist. If that isn't enough, you'll get to enjoy all the fun of being at a summer camp, from the beautiful pool to the high ropes course to making s'mores by the campfire. Lastly, using different media, you'll explore the values that Judaism teaches. We hope that as you explore your options for this summer, you consider coming to OSRUI and in particular Tiferet for a truly amazing experience!!
