Eternally thanking our generous supporters
On Sunday, August 7, 2011 the Yerusha Legacy Society Tree Grove was dedicated. Located on Camp's "golf course" at the back of the soccer field, the grove is comprised of trees each planted in honor of one of our legacy supporters.
Yerusha Legacy Society Chair, Shelly Handel's speech
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you this morning to the dedication of the grove of trees planted in honor of those who have helped initiate the Yerusha Legacy Society.
As we all know—from seeds grow saplings, and from saplings grow trees.
Trees can last forever and we hope Camp Ramah in the Berkshires will as well.
We ask that you recommend a friend, a relative, or a colleague who might be interested in participating in this program.
The more people that we reach, the greater the success.
Legacy Giving to Camp Ramah in the Berkshires was developed to insure the future of Conservative Jewish children for generations to come. We must make provisions today so that Conservative Judaism will be strong, and continue well into the future. All of you here today have made that commitment, and we wish to honor you with the planting of these trees, each of which contains your names inscribed thereon.
We hope these trees will be here for generations to come, representing your dedication to Camp Ramah in the Berkshires Yerusha Legacy Society, and our commitment to the magic of Ramah.
Your job now, is to come back each year to Camp Ramah in the Berkshire to water the tree, and to view the progress your tree is making.
When you visit the Grove of trees, which is absolutely beautiful, be sure to give your tree a big hug!
YASHER KOACH TO ALL OF YOU!
