Boker Tzrif: Our Morning for Bunk Bonding All Across Palmer

After serious deliberation, the drizzle was declared “not rain” by our Palmer mara d’atra (Chief Palmeranian Rabbi) so that the drops of water falling from the sky were ruled k’afra d’ara (null and void).  The fortuitous outcome: those drops would not hold back the tremendous force and energy of Boker Tzrif (bunk morning).  This comprehensive Palmer-wide program is painstakingly 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 travelling 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.
