Meet Geoff Menkowitz
Director, Camp Ramah Darom
Born in Philadelphia, my parents first shipped me off to summer camp in the Pocono Mountains at the age of 10 and I never looked back. It is there where I developed my passion for Jewish education and building community. I studied at the University of Pennsylvania where I received my B.A. and M.A. in Education followed by advanced coursework in Jewish Education at The Jewish Theological Seminary. Before joining Ramah Darom as camp director in 2008, I held professional positions on college campuses – working with Hillel at Rutgers and the University of Pennsylvania. I also served as Director of the Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Learning at Hillel’s International Headquarters in Washington, D.C. My coaching resume spans the range from Division I Collegiate Rowing and to Under 6 JCC Soccer. My wife, Elana and I have four children and live in Atlanta.
