Camp Ramah Breaks Ground on New Project

David Farbman, the President of the Board at Camp Ramah in New England, delivers a welcoming speech at the groundbreaking Ceremony for their new multi-purpose building, the Bet Am Gadol.

PALMER – On Sunday, July 24, Camp Ramah New England (CRNE) held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new multipurpose center, the Bet Am Gadol (“big house of the people”).  As CRNE approaches its 60th birthday, the camp is embarking on Camp(aign) Ramah, the most ambitious capital campaign in its history, supporting an exciting array of projects designed to improve community space, dining and residential areas and the overall camp beauty. “People often describe Camp Ramah as the pinnacle of their Jewish experience,” says Rabbi Ed Gelb, camp director.  “Every summer, more than 1,000 members of our community experience that in Palmer, MA.  We want the summer experience to be a springboard for a lifetime of engagement, and we need facilities that will fully support and enhance immersion in Jewish life.”
