Gesher – Week 7

GESHER LITs Learning a Lot!

The LITs had a great Seventh Week at camp!

On Monday, LITs built sufficient consensus to choose a recipient project for our Gesher Philanthropy Initiative.  The LITs worked hard, listened to one another, and came to a decision that everyone could accept.  The LITs are proud to announce that their grant will be going to This Life Counts, a new suicide prevention and awareness program from the Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Southern New Jersey.

On Wednesday, the LITs traveled to Ocean City, where we all enjoyed a day of relaxation and sun. The LITs had a great time on the boardwalk, at the piers and on the beach.

Friday, the LITs celebrated the completion of their Gesher Philanthropy Initiative Program. The LITs presented a check to Jewish Family and Children’s Services for This Life Counts.

Also on Friday, the LITs celebrated Shabbat with their own color war. We split into our three teams, took washable paint and water guns, and then set out against one another. It was great to watch all of the LITs having fun covered in paint!

B’Shalom,
