Shabbat Shalom from the Amelimot!

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

Shabbat Shalom Gilboa community! Shabbat is a relaxing time of the week that is a favorite for many of our chanichimot (campers). This week, we have a guest blog from the Amelimot and a little interview section from the wonderful Michelle, who is our Rosh Kef (head of fun) this summer.

Preparing for Shabbat

To prepare for the first shabbat of the session, Amelimot (5th grade) helped write the blog post, Sayarimot (6th grade) braided and decorated the challah, Chotrimot (7th grade) wrote the Oneg (the skit put on before rikkud (dancing)), Shomrimot (8th grade) learned songs, Bonimot (9th grade) arranged the tables, and Bogrimot (10th grade) learned prayers.

Friday Evening

After chanichimot (campers) clean their tzrifim (cabins) and get dressed up for dinner, everyone walks to the dam for songs and a story from Rosh Natasha before dinner.
