Tizmoret Shoshana

Again this summer, Jewish girls in the Baltimore area had the privilege of experiencing a two week overnight arts camp called Tizmoret Shoshana. The camp is dedicated to the Expressive Arts, and is created with the love and effort of many, including Board Member and local real estate developer Frank Storch.  The camp is a Torah-observant environment that welcomes girls from the ages of 11 to 19 each summer to express their art talents and to develop their skills.

The girls also have the opportunity to grow spiritually and emotionally during their powerful summer experience.  Tizmoret Shoshana has been offering girls this experience for 10 years, and does not differentiate between girls who are highly talented and artistic and those who are novice artists. The only requirement for participation is a desire to spend two weeks immersed in creative pursuits in a spiritual environment.

The Board of Directors includes: Rabbi Joel Feldman, Chairman; Frank Storch; Danielle Sarah Storch; Leonard Ross; Glenna Ross; Mark Singer, Founder and Artistic Director; and Chana Singer, Founder and Artistic Director.
