89 Days until Camp!
Rami Schwartzer: Long time camper, staff member, and Rosh Edah
for Kayitz 2010!
This is what Rami has to say about the Impact of Ramah and why he
is excited for Kayitz 2010.
I credit Camp Ramah as one of the foundational building blocks of both my
Jewish identity and the current structure of my life. Growing up in a pretty
secular environment, it was only at camp that I began to understand what Jewish
living and, more importantly, Jewish community is all about. Since my first
summer as a Bogrim camper in 2002, and in my 5 years on staff ever since, that
little village of bunks in Palmer, MA has continued to be my Jewish home base.
I am now a student at the Jewish Theological Seminary, and despite its prestige
I still believe that the best learning I get is at camp. I'm most excited for
Friday night davenen in the hursha together with the entire camp
community. I'm also tired of the cold and so I'm excited for the beautiful
New England summer weather (even the rain!). See you in 89 Days!
