On February 14, over 50 individuals from the Ramah Berkshires community participated in the 5th Annual Miriam Klein Shapiro Memorial Lecture. A former Rosh Hinuch, Dr. Miriam Klein Shapiro, was a beloved member of the Ramah Berkshires community and a lifelong student and teacher of Jewish texts. An evening of Jewish learning is a fitting tribute to her memory.
This year, Camp welcomed Dr. Neil Gillman, renowned Jewish theologist and professor emeritus from the Jewish Theological Seminary. Dr. Gillman spoke on “Elevating Each Moment: God at Ramah.” He relayed his personal observations and theories on the success of the Ramah movement, and how Ramah weaves spirituality into its program.
