Another amazing day at Machane Stone!
The entire Machane returned early from the Chutz this morning, and after tefillah and breakfast, everyone got cleaned up, showering off two nights of camping out, and ready for a day of peulot! With everyone refreshed, and the raindrops moving out, it was back to the fun, with many activities today, including high ropes, ceramics, and water trampoline in the Agam.
At Shekem time, while campers munched on ice cream snacks, etc., a debate was staged that was created by our encounter with the Enlightenment — should we stick with traditional way of life? Or should we except new ways of being a Jew? Except that this debate was phrased as “should we only eat Tradition soup, or should we except new soups?”
After dinner, it was an evening of special activities — Eidot Aleph and Vav went bowling, while Eidot Bet, Gimmel, and Daled went ice skating. Look out for special photo folders for these group events!
