On יום שני בערב (Monday night), we had a bonfire with Rosh Teva, Amiel and Rabbi Isaiah. We head about their Jewish journeys and sang lots of songs. The following morning, we woke up and got ready for our white water rafting trip. We rode on the bus and after many hours, we finally arrived at Adventure Bound, the place we’d be living in for the next day! We swam, hung out for a little while, then had a BBQ dinner. Afterwards, we had Zimriyah practice and then spent more time together, even making smores together.
יום רביעי בבוקר (Wednesday morning), we woke up at 6:00 for תפילות (services) and breakfast. We then discussed the safety instructions with one of the white-water rafting guides, and, after getting our gear–paddles, life jackets, helmets, etc.–we headed over to the river. We rafted for many hours, stopping for a snack break along the way. Although a few people fell out of the boats, it was a blast and something I am sure we will all remember. We headed back to camp, both and exhausted and content with our amazing trip.
We’re excited for what comes next!
