July 6 – MACCABIAH!!

Maccabiah broke out on Motzei Shabbat with the Tzevet vs. Tzevet Bachir basketball game. There are three teams - Yam, Yabasha and Shamayim. Each team represents a way in which Jews have made Aliyah to Israel. Yam - by sea, Yabasha - by land and Shamayim - by air. Click Here to see the team lists. Today's pictures are still divided by Eidot and we've put in an album of pictures from break out as well as an album of pictures of Maccabiah costumes. Machal is out of camp today on a rafting trip.

July 5 – Shiva Assar B’Tammuz

This year Shiva Assar B'Tammuz has been dedicated to help us all think about how we can do good for others, on a personal, camp, and national level. Here are some of the video clips that Chanichim have seen today. Josh - Opening the Doors Middle School Football Team Above and Beyond Tikun Olam There are fewer pictures than usual today due to the nature of the day Wishing you an easy and meaningful fast.

July 2 – Yom Exodus

Today was a special day in camp. We had some amazing activities! Joseph Gitler a Moshava alumnus and founder and director of Leket Israel came to talk to chanichim about his Aliyah experience and how he founded his important organization. One of the filmmakers of Beneath The Helmet came to show the film and to speak to chanichm about it. Machal had color war and last night we had a special presentation of the "Sweet Homeland of Israel" band featuring our very own Alan Silverman.

June 30 – Yom Youth Aliyah

It rained on and off all day but we adjusted the schedule and everyone had a great time. Eidah Gimmel and Daled girls visited "Cafe Oleh", our very own version of the cafes where Jews would meet to discuss issues at the turn of the century. During each course the girls were "served" a dilemma to go with their food. They discussed the dilemmas and came up with solutions. A delectable time was had by all. Eidah Bet and Machal were out of camp today.  

June 25 – Olei Tanach Day 2

Last night's Opening Tochnit was amazing! It featured a special version of "Let's Make a Deal" in which Olim from different countries tried to get the prizes that would help them get to Israel. The highlights were the Shelet Aish (Fire Sign), Fireworks and the Opening Movie. Click here to see the movie.
