Kol Ramah, Week 2
July 7, 2017 / 13 Tammuz 5777 

In the Swing of Kayitz 2017!

Yom Yisrael 

Today's Yom Yisrael program was fanan despite the rain! Led by our incredibly talented mishlachat, campers visited the "shuk," enjoyed an art fair, and wrote letters to Israeli soldiers. Once the rain passed, we went on a "walk of fame" tour exploring notable Israeli figures, and spent time getting to know our shlichim.
