Grateful for our NCSY Camp Maor Family

campmaor July 8, 2020

The journey to Maor@Home began on Purim when communities in New York began to lock down at an alarming rate. I immediately called Rena and told her we needed to stay home to save camp. We watched the news and the numbers grow and quickly realized that in-person camp was not going to be possible for us this year. And so we pivoted to create Maor@Home. 

Our vision was to provide an opportunity for our campers to continue their path to Performing Arts through a Torah environment in a healthy and safe manner. It was very important to us both that any staff who wished to join us would have a place in Maor@Home because every single individual who is part of NCSY Camp Maor is our family. How appropriate that our first week of camp’s theme is Gratitude to Family. 

We would like to take this opportunity to demonstrate our deepest gratitude to the entire staff of Maor@Home. With the exception of one counselor who could not participate, every single other staff member signed on to be a part of this program! And just like Bnei Yisrael, they did it “naaseh v’nishma”; they said yes and then asked how they could help. 

So we’d like to thank our family for their commitment, hard work and perseverance:
