Shalom from Utica! I am so thrilled and excited to take on this new role as the Director. As my first order of business I am pleased to announce that two of our long-time summer staff members and former campers, Sam Pailet and Becci Jacobs will join our year-round team. Sam will serve as our Assistant Director, and Becci will fill a new role of NFTY Southern Regional Advisor and Jacobs Camp Summer Assistant Director. We are excited to have added two home grown Jacobs magicians to connect all of our generations. Together with Ellen Alexander, our Director of Development, and Sandy Doucet, our Business Manager, we will engage, connect and inspire our children, parents, alumni, and stakeholders.
