Welcome to Our New Board Members

At the Ramah Darom Board of Directors Annual Meeting this past Sunday, our Board elected six new Directors for a three-year term. Each has a strong personal connection to Ramah Darom including as a past camper, parent, staff member and/or Retreat participant. Our new Directors join our current roster of committed Board members.

At the meeting, past President Sandy Herman was also named to our Advisory Council.
