Paul G. Davis Memorial Events
Dear Camp Avoda Community:
It has been several weeks since we lost our beloved Paul G. Davis, Camp Avoda Director for 50 years, and we wanted to circle back with you to share information regarding two opportunities for us to gather and honor Paul.
The first will be a memorial service held at
Temple Beth Avodah in Newton, MA
on Sunday, February 25th at 11:00 AM.
The second event will be held on the
June 15th, the Saturday of Alumni Weekend, at Camp Avoda.
By hosting two events we hope to provide everyone the opportunity to join in celebrating Paul’s life.
Below are the details regarding the memorial on Sunday, January 25th. (We will share details about the alumni weekend event as we get closer to the summer.)
We will gather in the sanctuary of Temple Beth Avoda (45 Puddingstone Lane, Newton MA) for some prayers, song, and a number of tributes to Paul.
We plan to show a video of Paul that will include pictures, short clips and written tributes.
If you have any photos or memories to share please email them to Deena Guttin no later than February 15th. While we might not be able to use everything, please share whatever you have, and we will make sure it all gets passed along to Paul’s family.
Following the service, lunch will be served in the Social Hall where we can gather, reminisce, and continue to honor Paul.
If you plan on attending the event please
so that we can order and plan appropriately.
Please note: the event will also be live-streamed for those that cannot attend.
We all dearly miss Paul, but we look forward to gathering to grieve and share some wonderful stories of a man who meant so much to so many.
Russell Sherman, Board of Directors President
Ken Shifman, Executive Director
