Solelim Update 2013 – Week 5

Posted by   on under Kayitz 2013, Solelim



Solelim Mix1It’s the end of the first week of our second month, and we are having a blast!

On Monday, we started our week with an unusual day, all of our miktzoim (specialists) were on their day off and so we filled the day with mini-games of silly competition and excitement. As a special treat, two awesome water slides were set up in Machaneh Aleph for all of  us to enjoy.

On Tuesday, after welcoming 13 new chanichim into our edah, we immediately transitioned into a new month, with new omaniyot and yahadut classes. Solelim has had the privilege, this week, to work with  David Moss, a visiting artist and extraordinary creator who ignited our chanichim’s creativity promising to produce a project that will be presented on Sunday first to the edah then camp wide.

On Thursady morning, Moreshet, a group of Israeli teens, sponsored by Friends of The IDF (FIDF) began their week long stay with us.  Their program  allows a group of Israeli teens, who have been affected by an act of terrorism or war, to spend a week traveling in America and experiencing  camp.   We are thrilled to have them join our edah and will spend Shabbat integrating them into the full Ramah Experience.

Shabbat Shalom,
