Emily Rosuck and Jenni Daum are long time campers who are on the Garin Greene trip. They have written a letter to GFC talking about their experiences so far as well as what they have learned from this trip. Here at GFC we stand with Israel and are thrilled that we have a wonderful group of campers representing us there.

The best part was this – all the way over in Krakow, Poland, they were singing our camp songs! Some traditional Jewish melodies were used, but more than half the music was written by NFTY and Camp composers. Fantastic.

We will have Shabbat services with the Reform Congregation of Krakow. We are lucky that it just so happens to be the week of the Krakow Jewish Festival. There are less than 1,000 Jews left in Krakow, but our culture is such an integral part of the city, that there is an entire week-long festival devoted to it.

By Emily Andes Shabbat at camp is such a special experience. The food, dancing, services, and community are uniquely camp. Often times when I ask campers their favorite memories of Greene, they revolve around Friday night experiences.

And of course, a note from our Garin Greene campers (they’re coming home soon!): July 22, 2011 Dear […]

By Emily Andes Shabbat is a special time at camp for everyone to come together as one kehilah kedosha. And as much as we enjoy spending this time with each other, it definitely brings attention to those who aren’t at Greene for the summer: parents, older/younger siblings, other friends. One group we often think about is Garin Greene . The Garin Greene Campers are GFC campers who are entering the 11th grade and instead of coming to camp for a session, they get to explore Israel for the summer. As much as we miss them, even for just one summer, […]

While here at camp we are sad to be nearing the end of Session I 2011, in Israel our Garin Greene Campers are just starting their adventure. After touring Europe they finally made it to Israel this week and just celebrated their first shabbat together as one community. While they’re having a great time together, they were thoughtful enough to send some shabbat wishes back to us at their normal summer home. Below we share with you their messages from last week in Europe and this week in Israel. July 24th, 2011 Dear Greene Family Camp, Ahoj (hello!) from Europe! […]
