Ramah Darom Totality
August 23, 2017
I came to the Solar Eclipse Shabbat with my husband and 2 children expecting to view a moment of awe but what I got was three days of magic. We packed our car, loaded up and picked up our kids from school early. We didn’t care that it was an excused absence or that things […]
The Jewish Future: It’s Worth The Investment
August 11, 2017
From time to time someone writes a pained article about the high cost of being Jewish, and in particular of raising Jewish children. There is then a backlash insisting that scholarships and low-cost options are available, or about how everyone makes choices. The most recent round was played out in The LA Times article “It’s […]
Rabbis in Shorts
August 4, 2017
A big part of what makes Ramah Darom experiences so powerful is Rabbis in shorts. Camp demystifies and humanizes religion. It strips away formality and removes barriers. It takes Judaism out of the synagogue and makes it more approachable. Years ago, when I lived in Greensboro, close friends of mine hosted a young French exchange […]

That time 37 “adults” melted back into chanichim
July 21, 2017
If you’d told me to look to the left then the right one shacharit during my Gesher summer of 2007 and said odds are one of those people will be at my 10-year reunion, I’d have told you to be quiet because it was the middle of tefillot. But then after putting my tefillin away, […]

Welcoming Session Bet Campers “Home”!
