In Honor of Yud Bais Tammuz the Campers played an exciting game of “Escape From Russia”, (organized by our very own dedicated Night Activity Director), during activities this afternoon. The objective of the game is to receive a passport and visa to “Escape from Russia” without being caught by the Russian Guards.
A special Yom Tov Seudah was served in honor of Yud Beis Tammuz, during this supper a special atmosphere was felt by all the campers in the beautifully decorated dining room. A special song sheet was printed in honor of the occasion, with songs associated with Yud Bais Tammuz, the campers sang with lots of Chayus and emotion. Executive Director Rabbi Shemtov then addressed the entire camp about the practical implications of Yud Bais Tammuz, and it’s meaning to us Chasidim today, he then continued to speak about the specialty of camp.
In closing of the Seudah, two new projects were initiated, a Chitas Club during rest period, and an essay contest, explaining the meaning of the names of the teams in “Toras Rabbeinu Leagues”, details of the contest will follow.
After lights out the staff had a special “Staff Seder” in honor of Yud Bais Tammuz. A Farbrengen with Rabbi Michoel Seligson followed the Seder, Rabbi Baras later joined as well, after his own Farbrengen with the Masmidim. The Yeshivas Kayitz had a Farbrengen of their own with the Rosh Yeshivah Rabbi Wolberg.
