Murray Goldwag, affectionately known as “Murray the Sockman”, is a natural people person and salesman who started selling homemade stained glass creations at crafts fairs and flea markets in 1972.
Murray gradually shifted his focus to socks, clothing and accessories and in 1987 opened the store “Kosher Socks” together with Meryl, his business and life partner. Located in South Fallsburg, NY, the store is still a hub of activity every summer.
In 1991, Murray and Meryl pioneered the “camp sale” model, in which they partner with various schools in the greater NY area and sell camp products on-location, with a percentage of sales going to the school.
In 2017, Murray’s daughter Melissa and her husband Gaby launched the online store, Pack for Camp, making Murray's goods available to a broader audience and revolutionizing the way parents shop for camp.

"I shopped all my kids' camp supplies needs from Murray the Sockman, from the canvas duffel bags to tzitzit to swimcaps to, of course, socks! Great prices, durable quality, friendliest vendor!"
"We received our order today and were very, very, pleased!...When I think of all the price shopping I did on other items I had already bought, It would have been so much more pleasant to simply order it all from you and still feel good about the prices. Thanks again for everything."
"I remember this place since I was a little girl! My mother would even buy me socks each summer to prepare for the school year. Of course over the past few years whenever I was in S. Fallsburg I had to go in and say hello and buy things for my own girls :)"
