Farewell to Some And Special Erev

Shavua Tov, Mosh families! On Sunday, after a restful shabbat, we said goodbye to the Nitzanimot (rising 3rd graders), Amelimot (rising 4th graders), and Garinimot (rising 5th graders). Before the chanichimot (campers) left with their parents and guardians they performed a couple songs, a dance, and some of the cheers they learned over their past couple weeks at machaneh (camp). We miss them already! 

The silly Nitzanimot are sad to leave Mosh!

Sunday evening was Special Erev. Special Erev (eng. “eve” or “evening”) is very similar to Special Day. Instead of a whole day of immersive learning, on Special Erev we spend an afternoon and evening digging into a topic through creative and experiential learning activities. The topic of this Special Erev was reproductive rights. Chanichimot (campers) learned about the recent Supreme Court decisions and their impact on access to healthcare, Jewish perspectives on abortion, gender and healthcare, and a brief history of abortion acess in the U.S. We ate dinner on the softball field with our tzrif (cabin) or ohel (tent) and chanichimot (campers) discussed what they learned with their madrichimot (counselors).

We’re looking forward to the last week of First Session. There may be some surprises in store for our amazing chanichimot before then… stay tuned!
