Honoring Gordon & Saskia Schaeffer

Camp Solomon Schechter has been an integral part of the Schaeffer family life. Growing up in Portland with Rabbi Stampfer, camp has shaped their family’s Jewish identity. Gordon and Saskia are thankful to have been deeply impacted by camp themselves and to have made their impact on Camp Solomon Schechter for their children, for Jewish families across the Pacific Northwest, and the future of our Jewish community. They are grateful to be able to use their resources to give back in return and ensure that camp is here for the next generation and beyond, l’dor v’dor.
