Gene and Gerry Huppin

Migdal Or Award Recipients

Gene and Gerry Huppin have always been big believers in uniting Judaism and Joy as One, and providing positive Jewish experiences for Jewish youth. They first became involved with Camp Solomon Schechter in 1965, when their eldest daughter, Beth, was eight years old and attended her first summer at Camp, back when it was located on Whidbey Island. Spending a summer at Schechter provided an opportunity for their children to receive an immersive Jewish education, 24 hours a day, and to meet other Jewish kids from around the Pacific Northwest — all very important things to Gene and Gerry.

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 life 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 in 2020.
