Partner Spotlight: Ramah Tikvah

Logo for Ramah Tikvah NetworkRamah is the camping arm of Conservative Judaism. The mission of the Ramah Camping Movement is to create and sustain excellent summer camps and Israel programs that inspire commitment to Jewish life, and develop the next generation of Jewish leaders. At Ramah, thousands of children, teens, and young adults come together each summer in communities that nurture social, educational, physical, and spiritual growth, creating lifelong friendships, a love for Israel, and a strong Jewish identity.

Since the first Ramah Tikvah program opened in 1970, the Ramah Camping Movement has been a pioneer in the inclusion of Jewish campers with disabilities. The Tikvah Program, now operating in all Ramah camps across North America, meaningfully and seamlessly includes Jewish children, teens, and young adults with a wide range of developmental, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional disabilities in all aspects of camp life—including prayer services, singing, dancing, swimming, arts, camping trips, electives and more.  Camps also offer vocational training and employment for young adults with disabilities.  Tikvah’s full participation in camp continues to lead to meaningful friendships, a sense of belonging and a greater appreciation for all of God’s creations.
