Ramah Shabbat Programs
Ramah Shabbat programs aim to bring a part of the Ramah experience into our campers’ congregations. During the year we run Ramah Shabbat programs throughout New England and the greater DC area. These programs are run by 2-3 of our summer madrichim and/or year round staff, and are provided to synagogues free of charge. Synagogues have found these programs to be a great way to engage children and families in Shabbat experiences, as well as to promote Jewish summer camp to the greater community. Ramah Shabbat programs often involve a Ramah style service, a family meal with Ramah ruach and singing, and a Ramah style programs for camper age children.
