National Ramah’s Kol b’Ramah Podcast:

At Ramah, thousands of children, teens, and young adults come together each summer in communities that nurture social, educational, physical, and spiritual growth, creating lifelong friendships, a love for Israel, and a strong Jewish identity. Ramahniks of all ages from across the Ramah Camping Movement will share their Ramah stories on Kol B’Ramah:

  •       “My Ramah Story” – Interviews with Ramah leaders and alumni conducted by a committed group of our young alumni.
  •       “Pod Across Ramah” – The weekly podcast recorded by campers and staff from the National Ramah virtual chug.
  •       “Tikvah Impact” – Interviews with Tikvah participants and families conducted by Tikvah directors.

Episodes will air weekly, so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode!

Zoom guidelines:
As we take steps to make our programmatic offerings virtual, we ask that you help us make the experience as user-friendly as possible. Through the Zoom webinar application, we will mute participants in order to reduce feedback and background noise, and provide the highest level experience. Please use the chat or hand raise function if you want to chime in or have a question.

For safety and security, we are asking families to register for our free online programs. Please click here to access our short sign-up form.

Additionally, we do take pictures and record this programming. If you would not like your image used by CRNE, please do not turn on your video camera. 

We look forward to Zooming with you! If you do not yet have the app, please visit Zoom.us to download.
