Vision, Leadership, and Change: The Case of Ramah Summer Camps
Reimer, Joseph
Journal of Jewish Education, v76 n3 p246-271 2010
In his retrospective essay, Seymour Fox (1997) identified "vision" as the essential element that shaped the Ramah camp system. I will take a critical look at Fox's main claims: (1) A particular model of vision was essential to the development of Camp Ramah; and (2) That model of vision should guide contemporary Jewish educators in creating Jewish educational excellence. I will draw upon historical accounts and theories of organizational leadership and change to question Fox's first claim about the history of Camp Ramah and to offer an alternative model of vision to guide future leaders of Jewish camps. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
