Dear Tikvah 2017, I’m Jared Skoff, and I am thrilled to be your Rosh Aidah this summer. I am excited to see all of you so soon at camp!

This is my fourth summer working at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin and my seventh summer as a Ramah staff member (including three years as a counselor at Ramah in Canada).

I have a very fun job – working for Camp Ramah all year long! I work at the Ramah office in New York City, and this is my second year working full time for Ramah. Before New York, I lived in Detroit, St. Louis, and Cleveland, Ohio, where I grew up.

My favorite things to do are listening to music, reading, and learning Yiddish. Now that you have heard a little bit about me, I am so excited to meet all of you, hear about your interests, and learn what your favorite activities are!

I look forward to sharing some amazing Tikvah experiences this summer with you, including singing at the Zimriyah, dancing at the Rikudiyah, putting on the Tikvah Arts Festival, and performing our Hebrew musical in front of the whole camp. Whether this is your first summer or your fifth summer, I know this will be an incredible and fun summer full of memories and great friendships, and I can’t wait to see you at Camp Ramah!

L’hitraot b’Conover, [See you in Conover] Jared
