Shabbat Shalom!

Shalom Gimmel Horim (Parents,)

We are off to a great start!  The Gimmel chanichim (campers) are very happy and excited to be at camp. They are enjoying their cabin mates and all of their friends.

We had a great first day of t'fillah, Peulat Sababa (limmud electives) and chuggim (activities). Some of the Peulat Sababa electives are "Jewish Music, Art and the Shoah,"" Jews in Entertainment," "Jewish Cooking," and "Jews in Sports."   

 Every cabin will get a chance to zip line this summer, and the challenge course is now a chug. Some of the chuggim electives are dude fitness and lady fitness, digital photography, video production, improv, a capella, Zumba, swimming, frisbee golf, Kendama, and basketball, just to name a few!

 Shabbat is an amazing time at Camp, and the Gimmel session at Camp Solomon Schechter is one of the most special places and times to celebrate Shabbat. We are all looking forward to the great food (brisket and matzoh ball soup for dinner!), the hang out time, and the uplifting of our collective souls. Thank you for allowing us to spend this special time with your kids.  Shabbat Shalom to all of our parents and grandparents of the Gimmel chanichim.   

 May you have a peaceful Shabbat!
