Rami Schwartzer.cropped.smShalom!  My name is Rami Schwartzer and I am so excited to be returning as Rosh Machon this summer.  I am a rabbinical student at the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) in New York City and a Gladstein Fellow in Entrepreneurial Rabbinic Leadership. I received a B.A. in philosophy from Columbia University and a B.A. in Talmud & Rabbinics from JTS in December 2010.  In addition to my studies, I work year-round as the Special Projects Coordinator for the National Ramah Commission, housed at JTS. I formerly served as the Youth Director of the Pelham Jewish Center in Westchester County, NY and helped pioneer the unique educational goals of Tribeca Hebrew in lower Manhattan. I live in Manhattan’s Upper West Side with my wife Adina Rosen, a Community Liaison Worker in the Bellevue Hospital psychiatric units.  I am very excited to be returning to Camp Ramah in New England for my third summer as a Rosh Edah, and my second summer as Rosh Machon!
