Meet Our Tzevet: Ari Weinstein

I grew up in St. Louis Park, MN, and have been in Boston for the past few years. I’m currently a senior at Tufts University, and I’ll be graduating in the spring with a degree in history and sociology. I was a camper at Ramah for 6 summers, and I was on staff three times.

Favorite camp event:
My favorite camp event is the aidah machazemer (musical), because every member of the aidah works together to create something to show the rest of camp.

Skill or life lesson learned at camp that has been useful at home:
Something I learned at camp that’s stuck with me is how to clean a very messy bathroom. It is so important!! Both in life and in daily nikayon.

One thing you couldn’t live without:
I don’t think I could live without eggs. They are my favorite breakfast food and a good source of protein.

One thing about you that may surprise us:
My allergy to bananas. I don’t think I’ve ever met someone else with that allergy! I wish I weren’t allergic to them because they’re a great on-the-go snack.

Camp is…
the reason for most of my closest friendships. My friends that I made at Ramah, whether we met right away in Halutzim or not until working together on staff, are thoughtful, caring, compassionate, and kind.

One hope or wish for 5778:
To visit more museums in Boston before I graduate!
