Schechter Spark

BE THE SPARK, LIGHT THE WAY.

Celebrating the legacy of Rabbi Joshua & Goldie Stampfer, Z”L.


We are so grateful to the hundreds of supporters that joined us on Zoom to celebrate the legacy of Rabbi Joshua and Goldie Stampfer, Z”L.

Thank you for making an impact and investing in our kids and the future of camp. Your generosity during this difficult time is inspiring.

It’s not too late to make a donation! Be the spark that lights the way for generations to come!

Missed the event? Watch it now! The program includes the last recorded interview with Rabbi Stampfer (z”l) and the presentation of the Migdal Or award.



Your investment will go directly to:

  • Funding transformative, Jewish experiences;
  • Providing financial assistance to families who can’t afford camp (and can’t afford to miss camp);
  • Updating safety and security measures;
  • Hiring Jewish role models, who make it possible for more children of all needs to experience CSS; and
  • Teaching our future generation to be proud of their Jewish heritage and culture.

Your support helps us do the important work of creating Jewish identities and strengthening the Jewish community. Be the spark that continues to light the way for generations to come.

The Migdal Or Award

The Migdal Or Award honors Rabbi Joshua and Goldie Stampfers’ (z”l) legacy and commitment to Jewish continuity and camping.

A Migdal Or is a beacon of light. The award is given out to remarkable individuals that keep the spark of the Stampfer’s legacy alive and light the way for others to follow.  

Rabbi Joshua and Goldie Stampfer (z”l) are both the inspiration for the award as well as the first recipients.
