The National Ramah Commission of The Jewish Theological Seminary recently announced the establishment of Reshet Ramah, a network driven in part by technology to engage and connect thousands of alumni of the Ramah camping movement and offer a channel for extending and enhancing Jewish community involvement.


Reshet Ramah will be designed and positioned to leverage alumni's Ramah camping experience not only to strengthen the Ramah movement, but also to recharge Jewish community and connections to Israel through new programming and partnerships with other Jewish organizations.


The global alumni network will feature generational, geographic and interest-based educational, spiritual and Israel-focused programs. These will include regional and national Shabbatonim and other types of retreats at camps, online learning opportunities and enhancement of programs such as the Ramah Service Corps, which is strengthening ties between Ramah camps and synagogues.
