During the first half of this week, Solelim participated in the first-ever Solelim Intensive. As part of the Intensive, Solelim chanichim chose a peulah of interest and spent 12 hours over the course of three days delving into their selected concentrations. The intensives ranged from farming to pillow making and song writing. Throughout the week, Solelimersstretched the boundaries while enjoying some delicious food-themed activities,too. Chanichim played human Apples-to-Apples, where they created their own red cards. In Shark Tank: CRB Edition, campers pitched their invention ideas. Solelimers discovered a lot about Ben and Jerry’s and topped off the afternoon with Ben and Jerry’s ice cream ,followed by serious competition in the prestigious Solelim Food Olympics.
As part of this Shabbat’s theme, ShaBuddies (Shabbat Buddies), chanichim will have the opportunity to interact with other Solelimers with whom they generally do not connect in an effort to build a strong edah culture and kehilla.
