Baruch HaShem! We Welcome You Back!

“Baruch HaShem!” Depending on your background, or if you binge-watched Unorthodox or Shtisel during the past many months, you heard this a lot. “Blessed be the name,” or more loosely translated, “Thank God!” In Religious School, we spend quite a bit of time teaching the value of Hakarat HaTov, recognizing good and finding gratitude in daily living. We thank God, we thank one another, we thank those who protect us, we thank our teachers and educators, and hopefully the list goes on and on, whether it be for our healthy bodies, minds, or presence in the moment we are in.

CAMP OPENS FOR THE SUMMER OF 20Twenty-FUN!

After the fires in 2018, we learned that camp is truly the people, not the place. In 2020, we learned that the magic of camp will always reach us, no matter the distance. As we begin our summer this year at Buckhorn Camp in Idyllwild, after these last few years we don’t take a single moment together for granted. The time we spent apart makes the time we spend together sweeter! With profound joy, camp opened, welcoming campers and staff to spend a safe, fun, and meaningful summer together this year—for Summer 2021 (more like 20Twenty-FUN!).
