Shoafim and Boker Tzrif: Hexaflexagons with Ephraim S.
There is a wonderful energy around Boker Tzrif (bunk morning). This comprehensive Palmer-wide program is masterfully designed to enable each and every bunk’s chanichim (campers) and madrichim (counselors) to grow even closer with each other. During the time that chanichim are usually attending various chugim (electives) with others in their own edah (division) but not necessarily their own tzrif, this special program focuses on each bunk traveling to several chug-like activities together as a cohesive group. This is a special Palmer moment dedicated to deepening and strengthening the bonds between and among the chanichim of each and every tzrif. Pictured here are chanichim from adat-haShoafim, having an interesting time understanding and then creating their own person hexaflexagon (for the curious: think origami, drawing, and geometry) with intricate designs. They were accompanied by their madricha, and also guided by Ephraim S. and Stephanie Sporkin, Rosh Omanut. What fun!
