Camp Ramah Host to Spectacular Jewish Celebrations

This fall, Camp Ramah New England (CRNE) hosted three spectacular celebrations: two weddings and a Bat Mitzvah. We were thrilled to welcome the celebrants, and their families, to our beautiful, wooded facility.

On October 24, Rabbi Ariella Rosen, a CRNE alum and long-time staff member, married Rabbi Becca Walker in an outdoor ceremony under the towering pines of our horsha (grove), followed by a reception in our open-air pavilion. Remarkably, fifteen years after the Conservative Movement paved the way for gay and lesbian students to attend its rabbinical schools and for its rabbis to perform same-sex weddings, Ariella’s and Becca’s wedding represented a historic milestone: the first same-sex rabbinical wedding in the Conservative Movement.

Earlier in October, Lindsay Stern and Daniel Chozick – both CRNE alumni and former staff members – were married in the horsha, followed by a reception in the camp Chadar Ochel (Dining Hall). This space was delightfully transformed with festive lights and elegant tables. Photographs courtesy of Take Aim Photography.

Also in October, Sasha Ganezer, a CRNE camper – whose parents Tamar Skowronski and Eric Ganezer met at CRNE in 1995 – became a Bat Mitzvah. With an outdoor ceremony attended by friends and family and with a ruach-filled indoor party in the Chadar Ochel, CRNE was a wonderful location for Sasha’s simcha.

The CRNE facility provides lovely outdoor and indoor spaces for any future simcha or other event. Retreat-style lodging is also available.
