Apparently Lena Dunham, as a teen, had to find neurotic summer activities other than well-planned kitchen raids at Camp Ramah.
At the risk of making too much of a brief reference on the HBO comedy "Girls," we report this tidbit about how the popular Conservative movement-run camp was written into the plot of this week's episode. It wasn't auto-biographical, though Dunham, creator, producer and star of the show, seems to wish otherwise.
Given the cost of a national advertising campaign or product placement, a mention on one of the most-talked about shows on cable is a pretty nice gift if it comes gratis.
But the folks at Camp Ramah, a network of facilities run by the Conservative movement, may not be kvelling over their inclusion in this week’s episode of HBO’s “Girls,” the chock-full-of-Jewish comedy about angst-ridden women in their early 20s trying to get a life in contemporary Manhattan.
