Ramah Alum Dan Brosgol Remembers Tisha B’Av at Camp Ramah in New England
Yesterday was Tisha B'Av, the fast day that reminds us of the destruction of the two Temples in Jerusalem. For many current and former Ramah campers and staff, our thoughts about this day are inextricably tied up with the traditions we have at camp in terms of how we observe this solemn day.
That certainly seems to be the case for Ramah alum Dan Brosgol, who is the head of the Kesher School in Newton, MA. He has recently written a lovely piece for jewishboston.com about his memories of Tisha B'Av by candlelight at Camp Ramah in New England.
