Camp Ramah in the Berkshires

Annual Fund Dinner December 10, 2016 / 11 Kislev 5777 Shelter Rock Jewish Center, Roslyn, NY


Mission Statement Camp Ramah in the Berkshires is a vibrant summer camp community, where children grow in a beautiful and safe setting, surrounded by lifelong friends and nurtured by spirited role models. From sports to the arts, swimming to outdoor adventure, camp is infused with the best of the traditions and values of Conservative Judaism: love of mitzvoth, Hebrew language, and the land and people of Israel; commitment to inclusion and Tikun Olam; and the joy of learning and prayer. Ramah is a transformative Jewish experience for its campers, staff, families, and the communities of the New York metropolitan area — a place where Judaism is lived, Shabbat is cherished, and every moment is elevated.


Rabbi Paul Resnick Camp Ramah in the Berkshires has been Rabbi Paul Resnick’s only summer home for almost forty years. He has put it above all else and tended it with a caring and welcoming heart. When he started as a Junior Counselor in 1977, an 18-year-old graduate of the Brandeis Day School from Woodmere, NY, he thought he would spend one summer on staff. But he returned the following year as a counselor, and in the ensuing years served as Rosh Edah(1981-’84); Head Counselor (1985-’86); the first Assistant Director in any Ramah overnight camp (1987-’88); and Associate Director (1989). In 1990, he assumed the chief’s role. Rabbi Resnick has forged strong bonds with two generations of campers and staff, created a great yearround team, and nurtured the development of the Alumni Association, which is unique in the Ramah and general camping world. His priority has been to make Camp accessible to a broad crosssection of the Jewish community by accommodating families from different economic backgrounds as well as campers who are emotionally or socially challenged. To that end, he has helped pioneer innovative programs from Breira to Ta’am Ramah, and this year, has extended that inclusiveness to the LGBQT community.Rabbi Resnick has also left his mark on Camp’s physical structure: the amphitheater; soccer and Frisbee fields; the Welcome Center and the Ulam were all built under his watch, and the Arts Center is scheduled for completion this summer. What he has received from CRB in return is invaluable. He met his wife, Martha, in 1982 when she was a Junior Counselor at CRB; she later served as counselor, Rosh Edah and ganenet. Theirs was the first shidduch plaque in the Chadar Ochel, and they will be celebrating their thirtieth anniversary in December. Their children, Rena, Joey, and Dori, grew up at Camp and have all served on CRB staff. The Resnicks live in Teaneck, NJ, where they are members of Congregation Beth Sholom. Rabbi Resnick’s new title is Senior Engagement and Planning Director, a role in which he will strengthen bonds and engage alumni, friends, supporters and parents. Even though Rabbi Resnick won’t be a daily presence at Camp in summers to come, his imprint is bound into the spirit of Camp. His goal remains unchanged: to make Camp even better.

‫מזל טוב‬ To Rabbi Resnick (Paul) Thankfully you are the sole honoree this year. This way we can write a whole page just for you. But, since this is our family ad, even though you are the “honoree”, the credit really goes to your family. For five years, the Hirsch’s were the “first family” with the Resnick family as our “best friends”. While Rob would talk and meet with Paul for countless hours, Judy and Martha would commiserate over a good cup of Martha’s coffee at camp. Surely our children shared a variety of special bonds. How those counselor/camper pairing happened we don’t know, but they were all the better off for it. So Paul, ‫ ישר כח‬on an amazing 30 years of “leadership” at ‫ !מחנינו‬We know how “camp”, thousands of campers and staff have all been fortunate to have you at the helm. ‫ בהצלחה‬in your new position, we’re confident you will excel in that too.

Camp Ramah Berkshires has been a “summer home” for various members of the Wallach/Hubscher/Mintz family since 1971. This connection has blessed us with so many long-time cherished friendships – amongst them is our 37 year friendship with Martha (then Ezor) and later with Paul. Our family is grateful to be part of this wonderful Ramah Berkshires community and for the lifelong memories. We wish a hearty Mazal Tov to Rabbi Paul Resnick for this well-deserved recognition of your passion, leadership, vision and dedication over several decades on behalf of Camp Ramah in the Berkshires. Your efforts have undoubtedly inspired countless campers and staff members-- giving them their own lifelong memories! ‫יגיע כפיך כי תאכל אשריך וטוב לך‬ “You shall know the fruits of your labor and will find them to be good.” Psalm 128:2

Mazal Tov Rabbi Resnick! Your tenure as a leader in Camp has spanned from the time I was a ‫ חניך‬,‫ מדריך‬and ‫בוגר‬.

As the generation, so is the leader As the leader, so is the generation. (Talmud Yerushalmi. Sanhedrin) Mazal Tov to our dear friend

Rabbi Paul Resnick It is our honor to recognize you for your countless years of dedication and devotion to Ramah Berkshires. Generations of Ramahniks, staff and extended families have benefited from your guidance, your vision and your tireless work on behalf of Berkshires and Jewish education. It has been a privilege to work alongside you. The longstanding friendship between us and our families was born more than 30 years ago in Ramah. We have celebrated many Smachot together and comforted each other in difficult times. We have had the pleasure of watching each others’ children grow from babies through adulthood and now to brides and grooms. We wish you only success on this next step in your professional journey.
