AMOUNT RAISED

$13,979.54
Fundraising Goal $16,000.00

MY MESSAGE

Last year, the Blas Family Bikers raised $15,676.  Please support us as we seek to break our fundraising goal of $16,000.  Thanks for your ongoing support.

One of the most rewarding parts of the ride is knowing that the money we raise goes right back to each camp for scholarships, program development and more!

Hannah's Statement:

I have been involved with the Tikvah Program at Camp Ramah in New England since I started coming to camp with my dad at age two. I lived with him in the Voc Ed building with members of the vocational training program, and interacted on a daily basis with campers and staff members with developmental disabilities. I prayed next to my Amitzim friends in the spirited Tikvah tefliot services every morning, and I loved taking part in Amitzim etgar (overnight camping trip) each summer.

Once I was old enough to live in a bunk, I encountered Tikvah mostly through the Inclusion Program, since my bunkmate was an inclusion camper.  She participated in all the typical camp activities, and we became good friends throughout our six years together at camp. 

The Tikvah program was an integral part of my Ramah experience, both as a camper and a staff member. I look forward to participating in the Ramah bike ride this May so that many more campers have the opportunity, as I did, to benefit from the inclusive environment that Tikvah supports.

Howard's Statement:

The Tikvah Program at Camp Ramah has been an important part of my life since 1984!  I began my Tikvah career as a counselor at Camp Ramah in New England (CRNE), where I worked for many years with Tikvah’s founders, Herb and Barbara Greenberg.  My work as a counselor and rosh edah (division head) inspired me to pursue a career in Jewish special education and inclusive camping.   

In 2001, after the Greenbergs made Aliyah, I began directing the Tikvah Program at CRNE.  As director, I expanded all aspects of our program---I created a full inclusion program, expanded our vocational training program, led five Tikvah Israel trips, and worked with camp leadership to hire graduates of our program as full staff members.

I now serve as Director of the National Ramah Tikvah Network (NRTN). In this capacity, I help support all of Ramah’s camps and their initiatives around inclusive camping and vocational training.  This past summer, I had the opportunity to visit many Ramah camps and see their Tikvah Programs in action.  

At NRTN, we are currently working to build a network connecting campers, families, and staff (past and current) from all of our Tikvah Programs, we are working with the Davidson School of Education of JTS to study various aspects of our Tikvah Programs, and we are working with various foundations and donors to support Tikvah.
