Third Shabbat

I hope you all had a restful and relaxing shabbat! After a very busy week, everyone at machaneh (camp) definitely appreciated a slower day

 019

To prepare for shabbat, everyone showered and changed into nice clothes, as we always do. We then walked to a clearing and listened to some poetry by chanichim (campers) and a story by Dekel (our rosh) to help us reflect on our week and prepare for the upcoming one. At night, the chotrim (6th and 7th graders) performed their oneg (talent show). Onegs consist of a hatzega (skit), a modern dance, an Israeli dance, a small makela (song), a project x (which can be anything the chanichim want it to be), and a large makela with the entire group. A lot of hard work goes into preparing for the oneg every week, and the chotrim did a great job! After the oneg, we all went to the basketball courts for some awesome rikud (Israeli dancing).

Saturday was a normal Shabbat. We had a sleep in, special chugim (interest groups), madatz chugim, zman tzrif/ohel (cabin/tent time), mishpachot (time with people from the same town), musicale, and medurah (bofinre). This week we didn’t get to have a bonfire because the wood was wet from the rain, so instead we had what we call indoorah. It’s the same thing as medurah, but it’s inside and without a bonfire. It was a great way to end a relaxing and rejuvenating shabbat!
