“My first Ramah experience was at Family Camp in 1994, and I never looked back.


Nine years later, the friendships I made at camp are still ever-present in my life and I can see that Ramah had an enormous impact on making me the person I am today. And the only reason I was able to attend camp was through scholarships.


I support Ramah today because I know it provides a unique space where kids can truly be themselves while making lifelong friendships. By joining me in Ramah’s Chai Society, you are providing our community an important gift – the help many families need to get their kids to camp!”


– Marty Pollak, Gesher 2001


$1800 is our average scholarship gift to campers who need it.

Your Chai Society contribution could directly give one child the Jewish summer camp experience.
