I am a 17 year old in my 6th year of learning Spanish, and would love to utilize my skills. Therefore I ask you: are there any opportunities you know of for a nice, Orthodox boy in any Spanish speaking country? I would like to be a counselor, but a camper would also work. I want something for Spanish-speakers, not something for tourists. I would like thrice daily davening and kosher food, of course.

    Thanks for the responses....I would prefer not Chabad though. – Matthew Miller Mar 10 '11 at 23:10
  • Matthew, you can still use godaven.com to search for Orthodox communities; like I said, this Madrid place looks promising, or could probably point you in the right direction. – Shalom Mar 10 '11 at 23:27

    Soy un de 17 años de edad en mi año sexto de aprender español, y adorar utilizar mis habilidades. ¿Por lo tanto le pregunto: hay cualquier oportunidad que usted sabe de para un chico agradable y Ortodoxo en cualquier español que habla país? Querría ser un consejero, pero un campista también trabajaría. Deseo algo para español-Altavoces, no algo para turistas. Querría davening tres veces diario y alimento kosher, por supuesto – Gershon Gold Mar 11 '11 at 0:37
  • My cousin spent some time studying in Spain. I'll try and remember to ask him next time I get a chance to find out what the community there is like. – Adam Mosheh Jun 10 '12 at 22:02

Hm. My guess is you could try the various Chabad-Lubavitch installations in Latin America. You could go to godaven.com and search for Jabad. (Including one Spanish-speaking shul in Florida ... you learn something new every day!)

There's also this Or HaYeladim ("light of the children") synagogue north of Madrid; I suspect their administration would be able to tell you about summer camps in the area.

UPDATE: msh210 pointed out Chabad has a worldwide camp locator; looks like there's a few in Argentina for starters. That beats any of my ideas.


Mexico has a Huge Syrian community how you would get a Job I don't know.
