This marks the end of yet another exciting week in Bogrim. We began the new session with much enthusiasm for new electives and yahadut classes. From stand up paddle boating to cooking, and from farm-based Jewish learning to a class on Hamilton, the musical, and its relations to Jewish values, there hasn’t been a dull moment. The Edah has also had a lot of fun with Meah Milim– the new Hebrew language initiative at camp. It’s an amazing opportunity to bring Hebrew informally into the camp environment.
This Shabbat we are discussing issues regarding the LGBTQ community and how it is presented in high school settings and in Camp. We will be discussing progress and activism around discrimination and how we, as Jewish adults,might approach LGBTQ issues.
