Honoring Lifelong Friendships

Historically, Camp Solomon Schechter has awarded the Migdal Or Award to honor remarkable individuals whose support provides a spark of light that guides the way for others to follow. Rabbi Joshua & Goldie Stampfer (z’l) were not only the inspiration for the award, but also the first recipients in 2020. As part of our 70th Anniversary Celebration, Schechter Spark is becoming an in-person event this year. In place of awarding a single Migdal Or Award on this special anniversary circumstance, we are honoring four lifelong relationships built at Camp Solomon Schechter that reflect Rabbi Joshua & Goldie Stampfer’s legacy, virtue, and commitment to Jewish life and camping.
