  Kol Ramah, Week 3
The Magic of Zimriyah!
It's been an incredible week packed with Zimriyah, special edah events, a play starring our Ramah Performs specialty campers, and a spirited Yom Yisrael. We loved greeting our Ramah family on Wednesday night and sharing an exceptional evening as a community. Please enjoy our Zimriyah videos.

General Camp News
Ramah on Stage
This week our chanichim took center stage at Ramah Performs! Our thespians sang, danced, acted, and explored improvisation techniques. We expressed our individuality on Yom Tachpusot (Dress-up Day). The highlight of our week was seeing our campers star in the Ramah Performs original production.

Limited spaces are still available for our Ramah Tech specialty camp. Please  click here  for additional information.
Yom Yisrael

Today's Yom Yisrael program was achla! Led by our talented mishlachat, our campers had their passports stamped and climbed the steps of the gesher (bridge) on to an EL AL airplane. After "landing" in Israel they visited the "shuk" where they used shekels to purchase rugelach for Shabbat and spices for havdallah.

They engaged in various activities related Israel's history, geography, culture, technology, and innovations, created Israel-themed art projects, and enjoyed spending time with our Israeli staff. Click here on the image above to view highlights of Yom Yisrael.
