As we welcome our new Torah to Ramah Berkshires, we want to greet it by creating a camp-wide culture in which many campers and staff members read Torah (and Haftarah) during the summer.
Our goal is that all campers have the opportunity to read during the summer.
We’re encouraging our campers and staff members to sign up for summer Torah readings before the summer begins.
Click on your edah (division) below to sign up for summer Torah and Haftarah readings. We’ll provide you with a PDF of the Torah reading, as well as a recording!
Need extra incentives
to read Torah?
To encourage Torah reading, we’re offering the following incentives for campers upon reaching certain milestones:

Fifth Reading: Limited-Edition Ramah Berkshires Project 613 Hat
Seventh Reading: Limited-Edition Ramah Berkshires Project 613 Drawstring Bag

Additionally, if every member of a bunk reads Torah, the entire bunk will receive an ice cream party and limited-edition Ramah Berkshires Project 613 ice cream bowls!
