What is Nirkoda Ba'Kerem?

Set in California's peaceful and verdent Central Valley, Nirkoda Ba'Kerem is all about community. Come join your friends — both those you've known for years and those you've yet to meet — for a fun-filled weekend of nonstop Israeli dancing located at the beautiful Wonder Valley Ranch Resort. We'll enjoy the benefits of California's famous vineyards by incorporating our signature wine tasting as part of the camp! (For those who prefer, there will be a non-alcoholic beverage tasting adventure.) Excellent wine and fantastic Israeli Dancing—what could be better?! Don't miss it!
