Erev Yavneh Dearest Friends--
This is a very exciting opportunity to celebrate Camp Yavneh’s 65th anniversary year and at the same time to recognize the type of leadership that has allowed Yavneh to reach this important milestone. Our honorees are indeed special, and have contributed uniquely to Yavneh over the many, many years they have been active members of the board. I will not go into their individual biographies and contributions because two of our past presidents who worked closely with them have done that so eloquently in this Tribute Book. It is written in Pirkei Avot (4:17) Rabbi Shimon said: There are three crowns- the crown of Torah, the crown of priesthood and the crown of kingship; but the crown of a good name surpasses them all. Our honorees have worked tirelessly for Yavneh over the years. They have done so not for glory or power - in fact most of the Yavneh family does not even know of their accomplishments - but they have worked for the good of the Yavneh community and all the families that it touches. Their humble nature and work for Yavneh in turn gives them their good name. It has been a privilege and joy to work with David, Lillian, Amy, Jordan, Bruce and Debbie all these years and I will miss seeing them at our future board meetings. Even though they won’t be attending future board meetings but will be on the Yavneh Board of Trustees, (like the Mafia) once you’re in the Yavneh family you’re part of it for life. By celebrating Yavneh tonight you are also supporting The Camp Yavneh Scholarship Fund which has allowed thousands of children to attend Yavneh over these past 65 years. Yavneh has truly been blessed to have these six wonderful people to honor, who whole heartedly endorsed and contributed to this important part of Yavneh. As our song goes, On and On, dor l’dor. Their accomplishments will be remembered for generations to come. B’ahava— Debbie Rosh Machaneh
Thoughts on our honorees from Past Presidents -
quietly and diligently attended to the task of developing a cohesive strategy for maintaining the current facilities and developing the new. Without Amy’s involvement, reshaping these critical board responsibilities would have been even more formidable..
Nathan Kaitz and Peter Nathan.
ordan Leff – Jordie has been a board stalwart for many years but his dedication to the camp is particularly demonstrated by his service each year as one of the camp physicians. He has always brought an exemplarily presence to our board meetings through his demeanor and sense of fairness and balance. One word in particular describes Jordie in his approach to his board participation and that is the word “Mensch”.
The Yavneh Board of Directors meets on a regular basis throughout the year in order to fulfill its primary function of contributing to the continuing success of Camp Yavneh in enriching the lives of Jewish children. For Yavneh to maintain and build upon the camp’s legacy of excellence, the Board of Directors provides for engaged leadership and for partnering with the executive director and other staff in crucial areas such as fiscal oversight, stewardship of the camp mission, governance, alumni outreach and fundraising. In that regard, our retiring board members who are being honored tonight at Erev Yavneh, have all been true to these ideals. Now, by passing the responsibility of board participation to others and by joining the Yavneh Board of Trustees, they play their part in guaranteeing our Camp’s success by allowing for board strength and diversity in the future
illian Gray – Lillian has tirelessly brought her commitment to the camp through board participation that has passed the Chai mark. In addition to her long service on the board Lillian has taken on various committee responsibilities during her tenure and served on the Nominations and Governance Committee in 2005 immediately following the Board Restructuring process. Lillian has been an example to all in how she has approached the task of ensuring the continuity of the board, recruitment of new members and the strengthening of the camp’s governance. She has never waivered from assuming the call to responsibility and has done so with the most pleasant of dispositions and the utmost regard for others.
my Klein – Amy is a person blessed with remarkable energy and perspective. Having joined the board in 2001, Amy then became a hard working member of the Task Force on Board Development that was formed by then President Peter Nathan towards the end of 2004. Having served on the Task Force, Amy took the fruits of this particular labor to heart and agreed to serve as a VP of the board, a member of the Nominations and Governance Committee as well as a co-chair of the Buildings and Grounds committee. Much has been said about the current positive condition of the Yavneh physical structure, however, we can all be grateful for the efforts of board members like Amy who behind the scenes have
ebbie Sheldon- Debbie's passion for Camp Yavneh is best demonstrated by the decision to send her daughters, Amy and Kari, to camp notwithstanding her husband Allen's strong ties to a different Jewish overnight camp. She has worked tirelessly on behalf of Yavneh as a Board member, finance committee member, vice president, as well as utilizing her accounting skills working on the camp financial records. In addition, she and her husband have been
strong financial contributors to the camp. We can all be extremely grateful that Debbie has contributed immeasurably to the camp since her introduction to the Yavneh family as part of Kerem 73.
ruce Micley- Bruce is one of a number of Board members whose family history is replete with summers in Northwood. Beginning with Gan Yavneh when his parents were teachers at camp, Bruce, along with his sister and brother, attended camp for many years. Then Bruce brought his wife, Lisa, and three sons to camp. If that wasn't enough, Bruce served faithfully on the Board for a quarter of a century, including time as the Secretary and on the Board Development Task Force. Bruce has been an integral part of Camp Yavneh for almost his entire life.

avid Decter- David has spent more than a quarter of a century on the Yavneh Board, including an important term as the camp's president. He has served as a mentor to the presidents who succeeded him and his level-headed, careful analysis of issues facing the camp has always been appreciated. The tradition which began with David's devoted Board service continued when his sons attended camp and is now even further strengthened with his grandson in attendance as well.

The entire Yavneh Community is proud to Honor our retiring board members: Amy Klein
Amy Klein has been involved in Yavneh since her daughters Sarah and Rachel Lefsky (Kerem ’05) spent their first summer there in 1999. Every year since, she and her husband Brian Lefsky would hear about the girls’ one month at camp (later two) for the remaining 11 months of the year.
When Debbie asked Amy to join the Board in 2001, she was happy to serve. Amy has real estate expertise to lend to the camp as we undertook projects ranging from building upgrades and expansions to site improvements and new construction. Amy served on the 2005 Task Force on Board Development, on the Nominations and Governance Committee, and as Vice President, Buildings and Grounds. She believes in the power of Jewish camping and says her only regret is she never got to be a Yavneh camper herself.
Bruce came to Camp Yavneh as a staff kid in the early 60’s. His father, Professor Mikliszanski, was the Director of Education and his mother, Dena Micley, was on the teaching staff. He was a camper, Kerem’71, counselor, rosh ayda, assistant head of the waterfront, rosh tefillah beginning in 1963 until 1977. He returned in 1983 as head of the waterfront. His son Jeremy, spent his first three summers at Yavneh while his wife Lisa was on the teaching staff. Their three sons all went through Yavneh as campers and Kerem and David and Joshua are currently on staff. Bruce has served on the Yavneh Board since 1984, when David Decter asked him to join the Board. He served as Secretary of the Yavneh Corporation for several years.
David Decter has been a devoted Yavneh board member for many years. When asked to be President of the Yavneh Corporation he graciously agreed. He has served for over 25 years on the Yavneh board. David and his wife Carole sent their 2 sons, Adam and Jonathan to Yavneh back in the 80's and now David's grandson Noah is a camper at Yavneh! In his professional life David works at Levine Chapels since 1990 as Vice President and Funeral Director. David was also instrumental in securing a large matching gift for the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s matching gift program.
Lillian Gray began her continuing relationship with Camp Yavneh the summer of '82 when her daughter Rebecca, then 7 years old, entered Gurim. Rebecca spent every summer at camp until her Kerem year - '89. Jessica, her younger sister, also started at age 7 in '89 and continued through Kerem '98, Na'aleh '99, and then as a counselor in 2000. When Debbie Sussman was first appointed Camp Director in 1991, she invited Lillian to join the Board and she has served ever since. In 2008 when Jessica married Ari, Debbie's oldest son, her relationship to camp took on another dimension. Lillian has been very active serving on many committees, including finance, strategy and planning. She is always willing to help. She also served on Erev Yavneh ‘07 committee and Online Auction ‘09 committee.
Jordan Leff has been associated with Yavneh since he was a camper in 1967. He credits his knowledge of Hebrew to his classes at Yavneh and listening to WYAV and Hebrew being spoken. Jordan sent his two girls through Yavneh, Tali (K'2001) and Hannah (K'2008). He has also been on staff for more than 17 years as a physician for two weeks every summer at camp. Jordan loves to swim and bike at camp with his good friend and (nurse at Yavneh) Debbie Forman. Their normal routine is a swim across the lake and a 30 mile bike ride! Jordan is a pediatric Dr. at Bridgewater Goddard Park Medical in Brockton since 1984.
Debbie Sheldon states “The best summer of her teenage life was Kerem ’73”. Debbie started her Yavneh career as counselor for Arayot in ’74. Her three sisters, Sheryl Miller, Beth Rosenblatt and Rhonda Cohen all attended Yavneh for many years. Both her daughters, Amy and Kari attended Yavneh from Gurim through 2nd year counselor. Amy was Kerem ‘01 and Kari was Kerem ’04. Debbie, who is also past Vice President of Camp Yavneh, has served on the Yavneh board for over 13 years serving on the finance committee most recently. She was on the Big Dig committee and chaired the first Yavneh auction. She enjoys working in the Camp office since 1991, providing monthly accounting services.
