Gesher LITs – Week 4

Our LITs had a great fourth week of Camp!

 

This Monday and Tuesday, the LITs swam, walked and danced laps in the camp swim-a-thon. The LITs were raising money for the grant they will be allocating later this summer. We were very impressed with how many of our LITs came out to swim and how many laps they swam.

Wednesday, the LITs trekked up to Great Adventure and had a thrilling day on the rides. The LITs were happy to have a long day at the park and also eat dinner there.

 

On Thursday, we all let out our inner camper and played at the Camp Carnival.

 

We ended our week with a GPI session in which the LITs identified which causes they feel passionate about. Many of the LITs felt strongly about Hunger, Caring for the Environment, and Homelessness. We also read all of the grant proposals submitted for the GPI program.

 

This week, we also learned about the mitzvot of challah. On Thursday, many of our LITs worked together to make 10 batches of challah dough, which we let rise overnight. On Friday, Rabbi Nathan spoke with us about the importance of challah in Jewish life. We then braided our challah dough, and we hope you all enjoy it this evening!

 

Next week, we will travel to the Zoo and race around to see who will win our scavenger hunt first. We are also excited to celebrate Israel Week with our campers.

 

Shabbat Shalom!

 

B’Shalom,
