What's New at Camp Ramah

Expanding Blessings

I have to admit, sometimes I feel intimidated by the number of years my colleagues have been going to the camps they lead.  I was not a counselor or Rosh Edah at Ramah Galim back in the 80’s or 90’s like many other Ramah Directors.  There was no Ramah Galim back in the 80’s or 90’s to attend!  Yet at the same time, I feel lucky to be a relative “newbie” to Ramah.  Why?  Because I am able to truly appreciate the blessing of finding one’s home at camp for the first time and to welcoming new members into our community as leaders.

Ramah Goes to Mexico City!

From Kabbalat Shabbat to Havdallah, I experienced the power of community-building between Kerem and our Mexican Jewish hosts. As we sang the familiar words of shalom aleichem together, arm-in-arm, and banged passionately on the tables during birkat hamazon, I was reminded of how deeply Ramah connects young Jews of different cultures to one another and broadens the definition of what it means to be Jewish and to be part of a global community.
