Honoring Abra Goldemberg
Abra served as Rosh Edah (Division Head) of Kochavim (entering Kindergarten) for ten years. An educator with two decades of teaching experience, Abra has nurtured hundreds of chanichim (campers) and tzevet (staff), with immense compassion, positivity, and creativity. Through the years, she has served as a sounding board for countless parents and families – an important connection, given Kochavim is often a family’s first day camp experience, as well as their first exposure to Ramah.
Young Leadership Award Recipients:
Harris, Haylee and DJ Mevorah
Harris, Haylee and DJ have grown up as staff members at Ramah Nyack.
Harris and Haylee each served as counselors and Rashei Edah, and Harris currently serves on Ramah Nyack’s Advisory Committee. DJ will return for her second year this summer as both a counselor and RA (Resident Assistant). Their demonstrated commitment to Ramah Nyack and volunteerism outside of camp is an inspiration to the next generation of Jewish leaders.
Celebrating Ramah Nyack Bone Marrow Donors
Ramah Nyack has hosted numerous bone marrow collection drives over the years for our staff to help identify potential donors. As a result, at least six individuals have matched and become successful donors. We are truly overjoyed to celebrate the life-saving mitzvot of our community members.
