Jonah @ Kutz: David White

2015.06.SummerCamp“Summer Camp” is The Jonah Maccabee Foundation’s summer fundraiser for 2015. Throughout June and July 2015, we’ll be remembering — through the writing of his friends as well as some who watched from the sidelines — experiences, both great and small, that were part of Jonah’s seventeen years (from age 1 to 18) at the URJ Kutz Camp in Warwick, NY. We’re hoping you’ll be inspired to help us help Kutz continue its wildly successful work of helping teens blaze a summer’s path to a whole, healthy life. Please consider making your tax-deductible gift at jonahmac.org. Thank you. You’re the best!

My memories of Jonah at Kutz consist of his overall excitement and kindness. Whether it was during the major we had together, which was theatre, during song session or during chofesh, Jonah was always so kind and enthusiastic. There was not a single person at Kutz who did not enjoy Jonah’s presence. What I remember vividly was that in our theatre major at Kutz we had the opportunity to break into groups and create a scene for the entire camp. For extra parts in the play that each group needed to fill, Jonah was usually chosen. Everyone admired his passion and energy and therefore were eager to have him involved in every aspect we could. This admiration for Jonah is something I will always remember. I loved Jonah Dreskin and he will always continue to hold a very special place in my heart.
