Meet Rosh Ivrit (Hebrew) Ayelet Ben-Shitrit!

Welcome back to our Rosh Ivrit Ayelet Ben-Shitrit!

Camp Experience:
This will be my third year as Hebrew staff. In my first year I was also on Garinim and Halutzim staff and my second year I was on Bogrim staff.

How did you find out about Ramah?
In 2013-2014 I was participating in a year of service in Chicago at Anshe Emet synagogue. I met so many people who were going to camp, so I decided to come as well! And I’m so glad about that decision!

Other camp experience:
I spent five years at the Ramah Noam camp in Israel as a camper.
I was a counselor for two years at Camp Ramah Noam Israel and one year at Ramah Noam camp in England.

Favorite thing about camp:
My favorite thing in camp is Kabbalat Shabbat by the lake, when the sun is in the sky. 🙂

Most looking forward to:
I’m excited to work with Hebrew staff, to meet new people, to see old friends, to see my campers from the last 2 years and
to use Hebrew whenever possible!

Life outside camp:
I studied at a secular and religious school in Jerusalem. I am currently working as a counselor at the Hannaton Mechina on Kibbutz Hannaton. The program seeks to train and educate a new generation of leaders who will affect change and instill the intrinsic values of Judaism and modernity in the course of their
lives, starting with their army service.

Hometown:
I am originally from Jerusalem, but this year I live in Kibbutz Hanaton – a Conservative kibbutz in northern Israel

Something exciting happening this summer?
Get ready for a great summer! 🙂
