Around the world with Ilanot! Yom Olam
We have been busy travelers here in Ilanot!! Yesterday, we spent the day traveling around the world, learning about the different places that the Jewish people live. We spent the morning going to Italy, Australia, Mexico, Argentina, Ethiopia and Spain, as we learned about Jewish culture and practices in each place.
In the afternoon each tzrif (bunk) created a flag for one of the countries, and made up their own anthem. They brought these creations to the opening ceremonies of the 2009 Ilanot Olympics, where the bunks got a chance to compete in different sporting events. We had a great day in Ilanot, and we are looking forward to the Bogrim production of hairspray tonight, and Shabbat!
