It’s hard to believe that we are wrapping up our last full week and that in a few short days we will be saying l’hitraot (until we see you again) to all of our chanichim (campers).
This past Sunday, we all came together as one campe for Rikkudiyah (dance festival). Cochavim had the opportunity to dance in front of the rest of the camp and at the end of the night we all came together for a big dance party!
All day Thursday we had a blast participating in Yom Sport! Each of our chanichim was placed on either K’vutzat Cachol (the Blue Team) or K’vutzat Katom (the Orange Team) and participated in a wide variety of peulot sport (sports activities) in addition to cheering on their teams throughout the day.
Last Shabbat, we read parshat Va’etchanan and one of the highlights of the day was reading the section of the portion that contains the Shema and V’ahavta. This Shabbat, we will be celebrating Shabbat Derech Ramah (the Way of Ramah) with all sorts of activities to show our chanichim how far they have come in just one kayitz (summer) here at Ramah.
It has been such a pleasure having all of your banim uvanot (boys and girls) this kayitz and I look forward to these last days together.
Have a wonderful Shabbat everyone!
Jake Greenberg, Rosh Cochavim
