Camp Yavneh Jewish Geography Zoom Racing

Everyone is invited to watch Camp Yavneh Jewish Geography Zoom Racing this Sunday, August 16th at  8:00 PM on Facebook Live. Tune in and join us for a fabulous interactive hour of fun and lots of laughs and an opportunity to raise money for Yavneh. 

What is Jewish Geography Zoom Racing (JGZR)? JGZR is a game show that illustrates just how interconnected we all are. Contestants are given the name of a random Jewish person they don’t know (aka, The Chosen One), and they race to see who can be the first to get that person onto the zoom call. The catch? They cannot use social media of any kind to find them, they can only reach out to their network of friends, colleagues, and family, and their networks of friends, colleagues and family, until the Chosen One has been found. The game’s motto? “It’s not who you know, it’s who you know knows.” 

Meet the Contestants:

  • Charlie Savenor (Kerem 1985) 
  • Ami Abramson (Kerem 1989)
  • Ann Lapin (Kerem 1992)
