Description
   Shlomo Bardin, was a Ukrainian Jew who immigrated to Palestine. Bardin came to the United States in the late 1930s to do doctoral work in education at Columbia University and found himself stranded here when World War II broke out. In an effort to combat the assimilation among young Jews he found in America, Bardin decided to develop a kibbutz-like camp program for young adults. After beginning the camp in 1941 on the East Coast, Bardin moved it to land he purchased outside of Los Angeles in 1947; he was able to purchase the initial 1,700 acres with a gift from Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis and named the fledgling program after him. Another 1,300 acres were later donated when a neighboring rancher died and willed his land to the institute.
