Schechter Spark

The Show Must Go Online!


A celebration honoring the legacy of Rabbi Joshua & Goldie Stampfer, Z”L

May 3, 2020 – 11:00 am

Celebration and Fundraiser

We are, of course, saddened that we will not get to see so many from our community come together to celebrate CSS, and the legacy of Rabbi Joshua and Goldie Stampfer (z”l) in person. But, we believe that even more of our supporters, throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond, will be able to take part in the Schechter Spark now!

Invite your friends and family to attend Schechter Spark. The virtual event will be innovative, engaging, and will bring a smile to your face. Our program will include 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.

Can’t tune in? Make a donation instead!

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.
