First Shabbat

We finished off the first week of camp with out first camp Shabbat! Check out some of our super fun camp Shabbat traditions:

Friday starts with learning rikkud (Israeli dancing) before lunch:

After lunch, we have Shabbat rotations. This is where each kvutza (group) gets assigned a job to help with preparing for Shabbat. These include leading prayers, setting up tables and decorating, planning the oneg, braiding challah, and guest blogging.

We spend Friday afternoons cleaning our tzrifim (cabins), in the hopes of winning the cleanest tzrif award! This week, Tzrif 9 took home the title! After cleaning our cabins, we shower and get into our Shabbat outfits.
