Last year’s Coleman Reunion wasn’t really a reunion – it was a reawakening and a reminder of the place and people who shaped our Jewish childhoods.

I come from a small town in central Florida where I was among the very few Jewish kids in my schools. I was never embarrassed as the minority but never really opened up until I got to Coleman.

Want to come back to Camp and enjoy Shabbat in the Hillman Chapel, eat Nellie’s delicious fried chicken, and spend a lazy day hanging out in camp? How about leave your permanent mark on a 12×12 brick at Camp? We need to grow our network. I’m working with the Camp team to get in touch with and connect more alumni from the past 50 years of Coleman’s history, and to do this we need your help.

Coleman helped me to learn many things: I learned how to lead services, how to teach, how to be a friend, how to clean a cabin (confession: not my strongest trait), and how to rhyme announcements during meal times. Most importantly, though, I learned how to be a better version of myself.

Thanks to Myra Wolfson, Camp Coleman alumna and parent of two current Coleman staff members, we can share with you the official Camp Coleman Cookbook- from 1971! Not sure the last time chopped liver was made in Jewish Cooking, but latkes, matzo brie, and some of the other dishes are still made in Jewish Cooking today. B’tayavon (bon appetit) and enjoy!

Living half your life as a sighted person and half as a blind man, the contrast makes for strange bedfellows — memories and present experiences crashing powerfully together in an unparalleled way.

After returning home, with red Georgia clay staining my clothes and a new hand-signed Cabbage Patch doll from Cleveland, Georgia’s Babyland GeneraI, I asked my rabbi to give my doll a Hebrew name. He did a full ceremony and even gave me a certificate proclaiming her name “Chana Leah.”

We know that not everyone will be able to join the 630+ registered Colemanites in the 30528, so we’ll be posting photos and videos on our Facebook page and tweeting the event using #Coleman50.

How did I pray when I was younger? This was a tough question. I told them that when I was younger, I believed that God lived over the lake at URJ Camp Coleman, where I spent most of the late ’80s and early ‘90s.

The important thing about our conversation was that it didn’t focus as much on campfire s’mores and scary stories as much as it did on relating camp to the field we work in. I talked about the stress of being responsible for creating programming on short notice with limited resources and how those skills translate to being able to work in any high-stress environment (such as a television control room in the midst of breaking news). He totally got it.
