Ramah in the Rockies Dedicates New Retreat Center

Ramah-outdoorsRamah in the Rockies has announced the grand opening of its new Beit Kesher Retreat Center to be dedicated on August 3, 2014 at the camp from 12:30 pm to 4 pm. The day’s festivities will focus on gratitude for its generous supporters including camp tours, optional lunch with campers, and the unveiling of a tribute recognition art. The camp is now in its fifth season.

According to Executive Director Rabbi Eliav Bock, the retreat center was designed to host overnight events for both Jewish and non-Jewish groups. He emphasized that Beit Kesher is the only kosher retreat center in the Rocky Mountains and that Beit Kesher is an ideal choice for those seeking a mountain facility that allows participants to experience the natural world around them while enjoying comfortable sleeping quarters. Rooms offer private baths, flushing toilets and in-room showers.

The Beit Kesher Retreat Center was generously gifted by Francine Lavin Weaver.

The vision of building this retreat center was to draw more attention to the camp and to help facilitate its continued expansion. Ramah in the Rockies is an overnight Jewish summer camp serving youth 8-17 years of age, nurturing leadership and respect for Jewish values and respect for the environment.

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
