I Still Go to Camp

By Jake Bengelsdorf I still go to summer camp. It sounds weird to say. I am a senior in high school. I could be spending the summer with friends, on a road trip, or getting a head start on school, but I choose, year after year, to go to summer camp. The camp I’ve been […]

Tradition and Change

  Rosh Hashanah and the Yamim Noraim are a period of transition; a time to move from the past and what has already been written, to a new present and future. This year that process is especially poignant for Ramah Darom and me. Both I and the organization I have spent my last 18 years […]

A Message from Our New CEO

I’m writing from Toronto (where, believe it or not, it’s 91 degrees today) to share my excitement for the journey ahead at Ramah Darom. Like many of you, I have a deep affection for Ramah and the transformative Jewish experiences it provides for children, teenagers, families, and adults. I’ve seen the impact first hand: for […]

Ramah is my “makom kavod” 

“Is this your makom kavod (respected/honored place)?” a counselor asked me right before Kabbalat Shabbat began.
