Chabad of Kingsborouch Reaches Kids Through Annual Summer Day Camp
Aleksander “Alex” Korchmar, owner of Alkor Capital in Brooklyn, New York, specializes in real estate development and construction. Outside of his professional life, he provides assistance to the local community. In addition to previously spearheading renovation efforts for organizations affected by Hurricane Sandy, Alex Korchmar provides monthly support to Chabad of Kingsborough.
Chabad of Kingsborough provides classes and outreach activities for Jewish students at Kingsborough College as part of its commitment to community development, adult education, and youth programs. The group also runs an annual camp for Jewish children called Brooklyn Jewish Camp-Gan Israel Chamah.
The camp, established in 1999, is affiliated with Camp Gan Israel, a network of Jewish camps which cater to Jewish boys and girls. The Brooklyn Jewish Camp specifically targets children ages 4-12. A highlight of the summer for many, day camp provides kids with an opportunity to explore a variety of activities and enrichment programs related to their Jewish heritage. Kids from a variety of Jewish backgrounds enjoy arts and crafts, drama, field trips, and swimming during a week filled with fun and friendships.
