Yesterday was the greatly anticipated Shoresh Day Off! This is a day that only Shoresh campers get to have away from their normal schedule.

Already, I’ve been able to work with a phenomenal staff, reconnect with campers I worked with last year, and meet new campers, all while preparing 72 high schoolers for an incredible show. Each summer, the unit of Anaf performs “Project,” a musical prepared entirely by them. By the end of the summer, they will [...]
