Bein Hazmanim (Hebrew: בֵּין הַזְּמַנִּים‎) (Lit. Between time periods) is a vacation in Orthodox Yeshivas. These correspond with the Jewish Holidays of Succos and Pesach. Additionally, time is given off in the summer, usually from Tisha B'Av through Rosh Chodesh Elul. Some Yeshiva students go to "learning camps", where they learn the Talmud in a camp atmosphere. Camp Ohr Shraga and Camp Morris are two of these camps.[1] Some students use this time for community outreach with programs such as Project Seed, from Torah Umesorah.
