Every camp has a dress-code. For some, you have to wear a white shirt and blue shorts on Friday’s, for others you have to wear the iconic orange t-shirt every day of camp. At #AbbaCamp we are a bit more lax, and we primarily like to wear superhero shirts. But, the counselors really need to wear something special. In this episode of #AbbaCamp, head-counselor Darone Ruskay talks about the experience of taking N & B on a field-trip to Rye Playland last summer, and seeing a camp group where the counselors had the most amazing staff shirts.
Darone has spent the past fifteen years working in the Jewish Education field, providing top-quality Jewish education to the North American community. he served as the Conference Coordinator for The Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE) for many years. Since then he has worked at United Jewish Communities (UJC), as their Director of Young Leadership Cabinet Membership, at The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), in the Department of Institutional Advancement, and most recently as the Managing Director of The Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning at Temple Emanu-El. He brings his passion for Jewish Life and Education, as well as his personal interest and passion for media and technology to this new venture, and is perfectly suited to lead the JCast Network (which he might just have to call JCN as he is so used to working at institutions that use their initials.)
