Shabbat Morning Service July 26, 2014 Cabin 5: Little Miss… Mah Tovu pg 290 I chose Little Miss Belief because I firmly believe that believing in yourself, others, and G-d is a very good ability to have. I challenge you during the service to maybe believe in yourself after all, you know best. The Bar’chu is about preparing for prayer much like getting up in the morning; it can be hard, but it always pays off with a good day. -Grace Rhein Please turn to page 313 and rise for the Bar’chu.

Living in nature for 4 weeks isn’t fun for some. However, being away from our devices for this period of time brings us closer to the people we love and live with. With no phones and computers to distract us, we are given the opportunity to look up, live in the moment and be with nature. Let us appreciate our surroundings and […]

Also, pray to G-d that strength will come to those who need it. -Alana Rothenstein Bar’chu When I hear the rom call go off and open my eyes, […]

Its Boker Balagan, Kallah Bet Style!

by Jeffrey Becker Today is Boker Balagan! “Balagan” is a Hebrew word meaning “craziness.”  This is a day when we don’t have the same schedule as the rest of the week and the campers get to choose what they want to do with the first three hours of programming in the morning: either two 90-minute activities, or one 3 hour option.  Boker Balagan will give campers the opportunity to try different activities on camp and spend more time on them than they might otherwise get to during Shabbat mini-chugim. The options for Kallah Bet Boker Balagan 2014 are: 3 Hour […]

Shalom! Almost every evening at camp, we have a different cabin lead T’fillot (services). Each camper writes a part and reads it before all of camp in between the prayers we say or sing as a community. This way, every camper gets the opportunity to share something of themselves with the wider camp, and to teach the community something about their values, Judaism, or their connection to our prayers. Our cabin services make each of our T’fillot that much more unique and meaningful. —Jacob Kraus, T’fillah Specialist GUCI Evening Service July 24, 2014 Cabin 18: L’Chaim Opening Song Life has […]
