Etz Chaim - Camp Ramah Buddy Tree



For my Bat Mitzvah Project, I wanted to find a way to connect to Camp Ramah, the Jewish sleep away camp I have been going to for the past five years. 

On December 7, the first night of the California Thomas Fire, there were very significant winds that broke one of the buddy trees in the middle of the "givah" (hill) in half.  This is a spot that means a lot not only to me, but also everyone who attends and works at camp. I have spent many hours hanging out with friends in the shade and learning about my Jewish heritage under the "Buddy" trees. 

It would mean a lot to Camp Ramah and to me to be able to replant a mature elm tree in this spot. Under the new Buddy tree we can share the shade with campers and staff for years to come and continue to have a place to learn and celebrate our Jewish traditions.  

Donations given through Go Fund Me will go directly to my Bat Mitzvah project at Camp Ramah.

Thank you in advance for your donation.
