Greetings, Galil Community!
Today was a sunny Friday. The day started off with Hitkansut Boker and Ivrit Shimushit. We learned the word “boi” which means come, in Hebrew. Then, we moseyed on over to the chadar ochel for a yummy breakfast of muffins, yogurt, and cereal. Then, we split into groups for avodah. After avodah, we cleaned the tzrifim extra thoroughly for Shabbat.
After nikayon tzrif, split into kvutzot for madatz pish. Kids went to the creek and had a peulah about the importance of play. Following madatz pish, we went to the mini-mo for some exciting Shabbat shira! We learned some classic Galil hits and even had a sing-off! Then, we did our weekly lice-checking and ate some splendid pizza in the chadar. Every Friday, we have a tradition where the kiddos do a silly walk up to a big rock in Hyde Park. Then, they get to say what they think needs improving around machaneh. Next, we had chofesh and getting ready for Shabbat. There was free swim, soccer, and intense nail-painting.
We all put on nice Shabbat clothes and split into our mishpachot, where we shared our roses and thorns of the week. Then, we sang songs and the madrichimot of each kvutzah blessed their chanichimot. After hitkansut erev, the Bonimot put on an adorable kabbalat performance. Then, we had dinner, which was chicken, seitan, mashed potatoes, and greenbeans. It was scrumptious. After dinner, we sang some more songs in Hebrew and then went to the refet for the oneg. The tzophimot performed the oneg this Shabbat and it was very silly. After the oneg, we headed to the pavilion for rikkud. We took a brief intermission to find out who won the golden broom this week. To their delight, it was the sayarimot! We had a blast and danced to our heart’s content. We ended the night with some refreshing watermelon, and then went to bed after an exciting day!
