Beth & Dr. Joel Selter
Benjamin Bendit Family Award

Beth & Joel Selter have been proud members of the Camp Nesher family since 2001. In a twist of fate, after having previously registered their eldest daughter, Yael, for a one-month session, Beth was approached to see if she might be interested in filling a last-minute opening for the Drama Director position. Beth’s response? “You’re crazy! My summer is all set and besides…I HATED camp as a kid! There is just no way!” Upon sharing the story with Joel, he ran to the attic, took down the suitcases and said, “Call Jeff, I’ll start packing!” Thus began the love affair between Camp Nesher and the Selters - Beth, Joel and their 5 children, Yael, Eitan, Aliza, Isaac and Isabelle, aka, “Izzy.”
Beth’s degree in theater and her passion for singing were perfect entrées into working as a teaching artist both in camp and in various Jewish Day Schools in the NY/NJ area, where she produced and directed a multitude of theatrical productions. Additionally, Beth is a Cabaret Artist and continues to perform her own one-woman shows in various venues throughout New York City.  Her most recent adventure is as Artistic Director of the Great Room Arts Salon, an intimate cultural venue that she and Joel have established in their home in Wesley Hills, NY.
Joel, a busy physician running his multi-location practice, Allergy & Asthma Care of Rockland, relished his role as a commuter spouse and his “honorary” staff-member status. Lending a hand in everything from Visiting Day parking and tent building to chazzaning, from choir performances to consulting as the volunteer “on-call” Allergist, Joel quickly became a camp icon, one who could be depended upon to help in any and every way.
Beth & Joel are deeply grateful for their 18 summers at Camp Nesher and forever indebted for having had the opportunity to raise their family in the most grounded, wholesome, spirited and spiritual summer home they could ever have hoped for. Both they and their children learned lifelong lessons and created lifelong friendships, especially Yael who met Jonathan Green while on staff together and later became Camp Nesher couple #19! Now, as they are blessed to watch their grandchildren grow, they look forward to seeing 3rd generation Selters take to the Camp Nesher stage!
