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. The counselor was seated next to me, she was a one to one for a special needs camper, and was also eager to tell me about her wonderful experience when she was a List College Student long before my time working […]

70 Years of Collective Service

I am looking at a picture taken at last Tuesday’s staff banquet – the closing moment of another camp season at Ramah Darom – and I’m feeling nostalgic.

More Support = More Success!

This summer Camp Ramah Darom added an additional level of support to the Tikvah Support Program. “We want every camper that walks through our doors to be successful, says Dr. Audra Kaplan, Director of Tikvah Support and Camper Care. “Over the years of developing our Tikvah Support Program, we have found that success at camp looks different for every camper. This summer, we added […]

Why am I not receiving your emails?

We often hear from parents that they are not receiving emails from Ramah Darom or they only receive some of our emails. The truth is our emails often end up in your junk or spam folders and sometimes get blocked altogether. Why does this happen? First of all, we send out emails from different systems […]

Log off and Enjoy!

My parents sent me away to sleep away camp in 1956 for eight weeks. I was 7 years old. I’m not sure how they survived during that summer and all those subsequent summers for the next ten years. There was no internet, there were no daily photos taken and posted for parents to view. The […]
