Today we are introducing you to Adina and Marcelo – two long time staff members at Yavneh. This summer will be Adina’s 13th and Marcello’s 7th summer at camp. Adina lives in Israel and during the summer is Rosh Mishlachat (head of the Israeli delegation) and, in addition to many other things, plans Yavneh’s popular Yom Yisrael. Marcelo comes to Yavneh from Argentina, is Rosh Rikud (head of dance) during the summer and helps choreograph all dances at Yavneh, including Rikudiyah, a dance performance by campers. Recently, we chatted with both Adina and Marcelo and asked them the following questions:
