Monday July 3

DATE: July 4, 2023
Today’s shiur was the big debate: Talmud Bavli vs. Talmud Yerushalmi …and why do we have two Talmuds anyway?? Our chanichim learned about the two communities – one in Eretz Yisrael and one over in Bavel – who were both growing and learning and developing haacha around the mishna. They were shown some differences in what these two Talmuds focus on and emphasize, and the younger eidot were shown a page of Gemara to have an intro/Geamra 101 experience.
Eidot Alef – Daled are out on the chutz with beautiful weather and are having THE best time!! So many photos coming!! They set up camp, played outside all afternoon and grilled burgers for dinner at their very own fire pits.
Kaytana had a great last day with raiding the shekem shack (ice cream and candy!!), watching an actual real-life Amish sheep shearing, a climbing wall activity, time to buy stoneware and a big carnival with blow up trampoline etc. We are so sad the Kaytana chanichim are leaving and are so looking forward to having them all here again in 11 and 1/2 months!
Machal drove to DC and visited some memorials (e.g. the Lincoln Memorial) and had a sicha about making a difference in the world. Tomorrow they will spend the day in D.C. To be continued ….

About the Chanukah Raffle

Dear Camp Stone Community,

It is an incredible feeling to reconnect with everyone once again at the beginning of our 2021 camp season.

We are writing to you today, first and foremost, to express tremendous gratitude.

Hakarat HaTov, literally “recognizing the good”, is an important and fundamental principle in our community. We, at Camp Stone, want to express our Hakarat HaTov to everyone receiving this email for your unwavering support, especially this past summer. Whether you provided financial assistance through your donated tuition dollars, participated in Indoor World, or connected with the Camp Stone community in other ways, together we had an incredibly successful, albeit different, summer experience.

There is no substitute for being in Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania, and this summer, B’ezrat Hashem, we will be back at Camp Stone, in person, in full force.

To achieve that goal, we must continue to ensure the financial success of our home away from home that we all know and love so deeply. The logo on top, featuring the slogan “Stone. Forever.” also features a Ner Tamid, an “eternal flame.” The year 1969, etched into the logo, is the year camp was founded. Symbolically, the overall image represents the idea that Camp Stone began many years ago and must endure forever, always burning brightly, and always an integral part of our collective conscience.

On that note, we are excited to announce that our annual Chanukah Campaign will be a raffle taking place over all 8 nights of Chanukah with prizes for both campers and parents/alumni!!

Please go back to the web page  to purchase raffle tickets and help us achieve 100% participation from our entire camp community!

Looking forward to being in touch with all of you in the near future.


Yakov & Estee, Co-Directors
