Solelimers started off this busy week with a visit from their families, friends, and guests on Yom Orchim. After the visitors left, the chanichim busily prepared for that night’s Zimriah, where they sang the song “Matok Kshemarl” with amazing enthusiasm. After two days of routine peulot, all of Machane Bet assembled on Tuesday night for the JV Pep Rally–pumping up Solelim and Bogrim for JV Palmer Day at Ramah in New England. During Palmer Day, our chanichim competed against Ramah Palmer in a variety of sports. Displaying great athleticism and terrific sportsmanship, Solelim returned to Berkshires thoroughly exhausted. Taking it easier on Thursday, with a late wake up, we had a laid back day capped off by an action packed evening of Dodgeball: Hanukkah Edition.
Today, Solelim and Bogrim presented The Little Mermaid in two daytime performances. Kol Hakavod to all of the awesome Solelim actors! This Shabbat’s theme is Shabbat Shabbat. We will explore the personal and communal aspects of the Day of Rest, as well as the 39 categories of labor prohibited on Shabbat.
