Spotlight on Yahadut

Yahadut (Judaics) at Ramah Day Camp is a chance for hanichim (campers) to explore a particular Jewish theme in-depth. Our theme for this summer is Brachot (blessings), expressing gratitude for what we experience in our lives. Each week will focus on a different set of blessings and ways that we express gratitude Jewishly, whether that be expressing gratitude for our bodies, the food we eat, the nature around us, or the people around us.  Through games, activities, and explorations around camp and more, hanichim will come to notice the world around them and express gratitude in a Jewish way through brachot.



Meet Our Rosh Yahadut: My name is Abby Kerbel, and this is my second summer working at Ramah DC, my first as Rosh Yahadut. During the rest of the year I teach at the Gesher Jewish Day School in Fairfax, VA, and I’m also the co-chair of the Israeli Dance Festival DC. I love Rikud (Israeli Dance) and I can’t wait to learn and dance with everyone this summer!
