Tikvah Director Howard Blas Receives Covenant Award!

We are delighted and proud that, this weekend, our very own Tikvah Director, Howard Blas, will be receiving the prestigious Covenant Award for his work with the Tikvah Program at Camp Ramah in New England!

The Covenant Award recognizes extraordinary talents in Jewish education.

Howard has been our Tikvah Director since 2001.  The summer between Howard’s freshman and sophomore year of college, he worked at Camp Ramah in New England. Howard recalls: “although I had planned to work in the kitchen, the Assistant Director asked me to work as a counselor in the Tikvah Program. Little did I know that this experience would change my life. I observed our campers learning about Israel, singing songs, and dancing—just like every other member of the Ramah community—simply by being immersed in a powerful, all-encompassing Jewish learning and living environment.”
