Rosh Report
By Naomi Nagel-Goldman
Hello! We are so happy to be together again at machaneh (camp)!

On Sunday, many chanichimot (campers) arrived for first session and filled Camp Tavor with songs and sunbutter sandwiches. Not to mention the time honored tradition of throwing the rosh, me, into the lake!

The spirit at camp has been
incredible, but it was really during Yom Meyuchad (Special Day) their creativity and imagination helped bring an alternative universe alive.

Yesterday we were fort building when secret agents entered our fort to deliver coded-messages that said “Save us!” and “Help me!”. A chanicha saw a picture on the wall that had little people painted on it and she exclaimed, “These must be the people that need saving! I have an idea for how to save them! We can draw them in the air and they’ll come to life and we can ask them how we can help!” She led us into an inflatable bouncy castle and we jumped up and down summoning out an “SOS!” (you can read more about it in Nathan's Notebook)

At Tavor, we’re invested in camp kesem (magic!). The madrichimot (counselors) inspire imagination by leading flashmobs and decorating the chadar (dining hall) with canoes and streamers. As the rosh, I feel proud to share this happy and healthy space with tzevet (staff) and chanichimot (campers).

Shabbat shalom!

Our Time with TOT's
By Jane, Abby, Alana, Noam, and Zach
This first week of camp we have shared with our Taste of Tavor chanichimot! Six amazing kids who have shown us how to laugh and play!

They have had such a wonderful time exploring machaneh for the first time, questioning traditions, like throwing the rosh into the lake, or singing on benches before/during/after.

They have really thrown themselves into camp, participating and in some cases even leading games and songs!

We'll certainly be sad to see them leave so soon, but we are excited to see them next year!
