The Yesh Shabbat Experience

Julian Krinsky Yesh Shabbat is a unique Modern Orthodox summer program held at Haverford College and the University of Pennsylvania. It offers world-class academic and sport instructors, air conditioned college dorms, a Wi-Fi campus, and dozens of fun and creative classes to choose from each week.  Spend every week exploring your choice of classes such as: tennis, basketball, kosher cooking, dance, fashion design, SAT prep and more! Our Rabbi and dedicated residential staff ensure that each program, evening activity, and weekend trip is not only fun, but also meaningful and infused with Jewish values. Yesh Shabbat has found the perfect balance between religious life, learning, and fun – giving each student the opportunity to gain new skills and make meaningful and lifelong friendships.  It is no wonder why our students from over 20 countries come back year after year!

Our Mission
Yesh Shabbat is a Torah-based summer program with a focus on Mitzvot, Derech Eretz, a love for Shabbat and an appreciation for Judaism. Yesh Shabbat accomplishes its mission by providing students with the tools to live as a Jew in a secular world. We create Modern Orthodox citizens of the world through extraordinary experiences.  

Yesh utilizes two sets of staff; one dedicated to professional instruction for all the courses and the other devoted to the residential life of the students. Instructors and coaches with professional expertise ensure that the educational aspect of the camp is truly state-of-the-art, so that the residential advisors can devote their time to the students' evening, weekend and Shabbat activities.  

Yesh Shabbat features small class sizes and low student-to-faculty ratios. 

Room is limited and each year more people apply than we can accommodate.
