Meet Our Tzevet: Jared Skoff


I grew up in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. I’ve been at camp for 4 summers. Now I live in Harlem and work at the National Ramah office.

Favorite camp event and why:
Tzimmes-eating competition on the second day of Shavuot. I have been crowned tzimmes champ two summers in a row.

Skill or life lesson learned at camp that has been useful at home:
I learned how to scrub a bathroom sink. This has been very useful outside of camp.

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
My Subaru. And smoked fish.

What is one thing about you that may surprise us?
I have a secret Instagram account where I only follow Israeli restaurants and Jewish delis. I have a less secret Instagram where I follow people I actually know but only post photos of bagels.

Camp is….
the best place to buy off-season girl scout cookies.

One hope or wish for 5778:
I hope to become a better listener.
