Packing Dos, Don’ts & Duhs

I’ve been a Ramahnik, since 1987. Each summer, I’d take two airplanes and a 90-minute unairconditioned school bus ride to get to Camp Ramah in New England from Birmingham, Alabama. (Camp Ramah Darom didn’t exist back then). My mom had one packing mantra she shared with us, “If you can carry it, you can bring it.” While […]

Meeting Our Mishlachat

During our time together, Ramah Darom’s 30 schilchim/ot learned about our Camp culture, daily schedule, aidot (age divisions), traditions and expectations.

Pesach Traditions

Do you serve hard-boiled eggs or potatoes (or both) during karpas? Do the kids or the adults hide the afikomen? When making matza brei, are you a 2-eggs-to-1-piece-of-matza or a 1-egg-to-2-pieces-of-matza family? I love that every family has its own special Passover traditions. Growing up, my favorite tradition involved my maternal grandfather’s reading of the […]
