Camp Ramah in New England is thrilled to announce the return of KISHRONIYAH for all SECOND-SESSION 2010 Tzad Bet (B-Side) campers!  Kishroniyah comes from the Hebrew word Kishron, or “expert.”  We have invited specialists in a wide variety of fields to join us at camp to run intensive multi-day programs for our SECOND-SESSION Tzad Bet campers.
