Capital Campaign: Camp(aign) Ramah
With New Chadar Ochel, Successful Camp(aign) Ramah Closes
About six years ago, Camp Ramah in New England was blessed to have its own visionaries and heroes: people who love and value the Camp Ramah experience and who knew that the time was right to take ambitious steps to secure Camp Ramah’s future. Our board of directors, early donors and campaign leaders and volunteers understood that the time was right to launch Camp(aign) Ramah, by far the largest philanthropic initiative in Camp Ramah’s over 60-year history.
Since then, hundreds of supporters have committed a total of $6.25 million – what an achievement! Soon, the new 23,000 square foot new Chadar Ochel (Dining Hall) will be finished and this much-needed facility will nourish our large kehillah (community) with over 2,400+ meals daily. But meals in the new Chadar Ochel will serve a much larger purpose: they will be opportunities to deepen friendships, practice the newest Israeli dance, celebrate each day with song – and through these experiences forge a strong community of young Jews.
Our community’s philanthropic investment speaks to the enduring impact of the Camp Ramah experience upon our campers and their families and is a testimony to the spirit of tzedakah that defines our camp community. This investment speaks to our donors’ trust in Camp Ramah’s ability to transform young Jewish lives.
Thanks to our devoted donor community, which supported Camp(aign) Ramah, our camp home has been transformed through the completion of four major projects. In addition to the Chadar Ochel, we have added the Bet Am Gadol (multipurpose center), K’far Nivonim (village for our oldest campers), and an arts/welcome center. Now, with the anticipated completion of a new Chadar Ochel, we officially close Camp(aign) Ramah.
Todah Rabbah. With your love and support, the Camp Ramah in New England kehillah will thrive for generations to come.
