Ramah Bamah

Ramah Bamah, is a new 2-week program for rising 8th-10th grade campers interested in musical theater. Participants will work with seasoned professionals on acting and musical skill development and perform a special Ramah Bamah production for the entire Camp.

Watch the Virtual Open House recording.

Whether joining us at Camp for just the 2-week program or combining Ramah Bamah with a 4-week or full-summer Camp experience, participants will live among their same-age peers and participate in tzrif (bunk) activities and aidah (age division) programs. Ramah Bamah campers will experience all the magic of Ramah Darom’s joyful Jewish community while spending their elective time focusing on the performing arts.

Meet the Directors

Introducing the Ramah Bamah Directors

Acting Director

Jonah Greene is a Ph.D. student and Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Department of Theatre & Dance at the University of Kansas. He has an extensive theatrical background in directing, dramaturgy, acting, and administration, with credits at the University of Kansas, SpeakEasy Stage Company in Boston, Tufts University, the Jewish Plays Project, TheatreSquared, JELLY Theatre Workshop, New Threshold Theatre, The Hatchery, and Arts Live Theatre. As a Ph.D. student, Jonah’s research and theatre-making interests focus on the intersections between theatre and Jewish community, history, and identity. He has presented scholarly work at multiple professional theatre and Jewish Studies conferences. Jonah is a former Ramah Darom chanich (camper) and madrich (counselor), Gesher ‘14, and is thrilled to be returning to lead the Ramah Bamah program!

Musical Director

Rabbi Adam Roffman is from Dallas, Texas where he and his wife Rabbi Shira Wallach (a Darom alum!) have served since 2013. Prior to rabbinical school at JTS, Adam spent several years in New York working as an actor and director. Adam trained at Circle in the Square Theatre School and the tools he mastered there have helped him integrate his passion for building Jewish communities and his reverence for musical theatre. Aside from directing epic Purim spiels, Adam has written two one-man shows that chronicle his career as a rabbi and performer, the second of which, Songs Your Rabbi Shouldn’t Sing, premieres this fall.
