Friday capped off an exciting week for the edah. Fueled by their passions and interest, our madrichim , planned an incredible variety of themed activities for Boker Tzrif. Chanichim embraced the activities as they also enjoyed the opportunity to bond with their bunkmates. To add to a full week’s agenda Machon demonstrated maturity in dealing withweighty issues of gender roles and inequality. This Shabbat, we will expand the theme by exploring the responsibility of modern Jewry to recognize and combat racism. We’ll begin our week on early Sunday morning, as we load buses and headout on our first tiyul to Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Niagara Falls.
