Boker Tzrif: Colorful Rock-ing with Shoafim & Emily Shapiro Katz
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, in “Colorful Rock-ing”, exhibiting their finished product in bright, vivid colors. They were guided by Emily Shapiro Katz, who lives in Beer Sheva, Israel, and is spending her first summer here at Palmer on tzevet Hinuch (Education staff) with her husband and 4 adorable children. She is seen above holding a few of the “monster ” rocks.
