Everyone’s Ramah journey looks different: whether you’ve been going to camp since you were eight years old or you first joined the Ramah community as a staff member, your camp experience likely helped shape you into the Jewish adult you are today. When you think back on your summers at camp, maybe you can feel the scratch in your throat from losing your voice during Yom Sport, the hum of excitement on Friday nights as you walk to Shabbat davening, or the late-night conversation with a bunkmate that has stayed with you ever since.
Your Ramah journey began at camp, but the community you built, the lessons you learned, and the joyful Judaism you experienced doesn’t end there. At Reshet Ramah, our mission is to strengthen the Jewish community by bringing Ramah alumni together through social, religious, and professional gatherings, and to create meaningful Ramah connections among alumni at every stage of their lives. It is our hope that the kehillah kedosha, holy community, that you experienced at Ramah continues to be a part of your present and future.
