On Sunday, December 6, 2020, we will gather as a community when Camp Ramah in California honors Rabbi Joe, Randy Michaels, Ariella Moss Peterseil and recognize Dr. Aviva Levine Jacobs, John Magoulas, and Elana Naftalin-Kelman
On Sunday, December 6, 2020, we will joyfully gather as a community for a Shehechianu moment – our first-ever virtual Celebration Gala. While we will certainly miss the warmth of our community gathering at Sinai Temple, this moment presents new opportunities – namely, not having to sit in LA traffic on your way over. In all seriousness, we are delighted and grateful to recognize our executive staff for their accomplishments throughout their tenure with Camp Ramah and especially during this year.
We can think of no better way to honor the individuals that have carried us through 2020 with intention, transparency, and dedication. Throughout this year of uncertainty, we had confidence that Camp Ramah would remain healthy due to the leadership of our executive team.
This year, we honor and recognize the leaders of Camp Ramah in California.

To sustain the legacy of Jewish Camp and its role in Jewish life, proceeds from the evening’s celebration will support our COVID-19 Emergency Fund. This fund is crucial in overcoming the shortfall we endured during this crisis and ensuring our financial stability as we move toward the future.
