Welcome to Randy Michaels's Page

Recently I have been inspired by people’s commitment to causes and action as a way of celebrating milestone moments. This year has marked a number of these milestones for us; Marlene and I just celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary, Stephen is turning 20 in a few days and is in his 2nd year at Chapman, this was my 10th summer at Ramah and Alex’s last as a camper. I have committed myself to a year of professional and personal growth by enrolling in the Management & Leadership program at UCLA Anderson, Marlene is 6 years in the battle and continues to inspire us all with her courage, determination and fight!

And tomorrow, I am turning 50!

None of these moments could have been achieved without the support of community.

We are blessed to have the dearest of friends and family in our lives and to be a part of the remarkable Ramah community.
As a small token of my gratitude, I will be riding again this year in The Tour de Summer Camps and have started this fundraising effort to ensure the doors of our community are always open and accessible.

The monies distributed to our camps through the Tour de Summer Camps has immediate and lasting impact.

One of the most gratifying parts of my complex work is to oversee the distribution of over $600,000 in financial aid each year to deserving families who wish to provide the experience and journey of a lifetime that is summer camp.

I was given the gift of Ramah through the generosity of our Schechter and Beth El communities in Chicago and much who I am is because of Ramah. Our boys are the loving, caring, creative, supportive, challenging, articulate thoughtful and grounded people they are because of family,community and Ramah. Marlene and I could never have continued to give them Ramah without financial aid. It has been a gift that we are forever and profoundly grateful for.

Please help us celebrate these milestone moments, and the millions more Jewish Camping provide year after year. Thank you!

Much love and gratitude
