Day Two of Color War: Navi vs. Melech (prophet vs. king)
After the shiur about prophecy and the role of the prophet in our nation, we began our day of competition (friendly, of course, but fierce nontheless!)
Chanichim are giving it their all, dressed in team colors and wearing face paint, they are volunteering to help out wherever needed – some can swim fast, others play ball, some are quick on the high ropes etc. In the afternoon, we had the Chidon – where each team has to answer Torah and Halacha questions as well as questions that review the shiurim we have learned this session. After shekem, we started the relay race that usually takes over an hour but this year got rained out half-way through 🙁 We all gathered in the chadar ochel, accounted for everyone, and then had a cheer-off!
The night tochnit was the presentation of all the projects and dances each team had been preparing – a skit, a boys’ rikud, a flag-dance (daglanut), a glow-in-dark dance, cheers, and lots of painting projects! We were all in Indoor World and the energy was super-high!! Everyone really enjoyed and was so supportive and proud of all of their team presentations.
We are all winners after those two days!!
When the points were tallied – Team Navi was declared the official winner of Color War 2021 Session 1. Congrats!!
Next up – an extra hour of sleep!! Wake-up Thurs morning is 8:30 a.m. not 7:30 – now that is exciting news for this blog 🙂
