Annual Gala 2020

On Saturday, December 5, 2020, we will joyfully gather as a community for “L’Chaim Ramah” – our first-ever virtual Gala.

While we will certainly miss the special experience of gathering in person, this moment presents new opportunities, both for the event and for our community.  We hope this year our gala will attract our largest crowd of participants to date, and help us raise critically needed funds for Camp following a very challenging financial year.

In the midst of a year of unprecedented health and medical challenges, both for our camp and for the world, we are honoring the members of our Ramah Berkshires Medical Committee.

This is a special opportunity for us to thank and honor the Medical Committee members who have, for many years, been a part of keeping our Ramah Berkshires community safe and healthy.  In particular, we are recognizing the Medical Committee for helping us navigate through the complicated decisions we had to make this past year as an organization.

Proceeds from the evening’s celebration will support our 2020-2021 Annual Fund, a fund that brings new and innovative programming to Camp; provides training to our staff, future leaders of the Jewish community; and, gives scholarships to hundreds of Jewish children who would otherwise be unable to experience the magic of Ramah Berkshires.

In honor of our Medical Committee, a portion of this year’s proceeds will go directly towards our efforts to enhance the operation of the Ramah Berkshires Marpeah (infirmary/“marp”).

We hope you will join us for this fun, entertaining, and powerful one-of-a-kind event!
