In the Woods (Camp)
“The three men I admire most are the father, son and Holy Ghost…” You did say favorite Jewish memory. I’m getting there. I was a teenager, active in my youth group. I spent a week at a summer camp in PA to talk about Jewish leadership. I had recently been chosen as the board member in charge of programming. This week started me on a long winding path to engaging others through Jewish programming. What struck me as a super funny moment was when we had a sing along one night. There were a hundred high school aged kids like me, all passionate about our Jewish youth group, singing Don Mclean’s American Pie. And then we all sang that line and burst out laughing. If I were ever to write my life story, I’ve always known that would be a scene in it.
