Rabbi Joel Seltzer, executive director of Camp Ramah in the Poconos, will tackle the topic of "Making Jews in 21st Century America" at the Federation's annual major donor reception.
Rabbi Joel is originally from Philadelphia and he himself is a home-grown product of Camp Ramah in the Poconos. Whether as a camper, a counselor, a rosh edah (division head), or rosh drama (head of performing arts), Rabbi Joel learned countless personal and professional life lessons from his time at camp. A graduate of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, Rabbi Joel served as a rabbi at Temple Emanu-El in Providence, Rhode Island, for four years before returning to his spiritual home: Camp Ramah. Rabbi Joel lives in Philadelphia with his wife Eliana (whom he met at camp!) and their three daughters.
