Amy Skopp Cooper, Assistant Director of the National Ramah Commission of The Jewish Theological Seminary, and Director of Ramah Day Camp in Nyack, has received The Covenant Foundation's prestigious 2011 Covenant Award for Excellence in Jewish Education. The Covenant Award is presented annually to three exceptional Jewish educators in recognition of their innovation, inspiration and transformative impact on Jewish education.
Through Amy's personal drive and her exceptional commitment to Jewish education, she annually inspires hundreds of young Jewish educators at Ramah Day Camp in Nyack to create a safe and joyful Jewish environment for young children, framed by the highest educational standards and infused with a love of Jewish life. In her role as National Assistant Director of the Ramah Camping Movement, she has most recently taken the lead role in developing the Ramah Service Corps, a trailblazing, innovative new program that helps bring the "magic" of Ramah summer camping to year-round settings, creating opportunities for young Ramah staff members to develop programming for synagogues, schools and other educational environments.
