Jewish Life

אוירה יהודית

2017 Week 5 Yom Yisrael 1.JPG

כוח למוח / Brain Power

Only at Ramah can relay races teach the birkot hashachar (morning prayers) and ordinary benches and milk crates become the walls of the ancient temple. Our creative and inspiring Jewish education component uses fun camp activities that children already enjoy to teach Jewish knowledge and concepts.


תפלה / Prayer

Every day, campers enjoy singing and learning age-appropriate prayers in our beautiful makom tefillah (place of prayer). The melodic guitar accompaniment and serene settting provide campers with a safe, nurturing space to explore their spirituality. We view tefillah time as an opportunity to bring together Jews from all denominations and educational backgrounds--we pray as one!


הכנה לשבת / 

Shabbat Preparation

Every Friday afternoon the whole camp gathers under the ohel gadol (big tent) to welcome in Shabbat. We find out who passed a swim level, sing niggunim (melodies), learn about Israel from our mishlachat (ambassadors), enjoy Story with Lori, and dance together on the kikar (field) before heading home. What a wonderful way to end another spectacular week at Ramah Day Camp.
