Nivonim takes NYC: Day 1


Greetings from New York City! It’s been a spectacular day here in the big apple (not to mention exhausting), and we’re very happy to be settling down for the night at Sutton Place Synagogue, our home for three nights. (Thank you to Ramah New England alumna Rabbi Rachel Ain for her hospitality!)

Today started with a bright and early shacharit and breakfast back at camp, and we pulled out of Palmer at exacrly 7:15. After an uneventful and smooth ride, we got to Sutton Place, put down our stuff and made a pack out lunch. Afterwards, we walked through the Upper East Side to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The kids loved seeing all of the artwork, from modern art to “Washington Crossing the Delaware.”

We then walked through Central Park to the SummerStage, and saw an evening concert that was a tribute to the late Pete Seeger. We loved hearing all different types of music and enjoyed being outdoors. The highlight might just have been getting 28 kosher pizzas delivered straight to the concert.

We’ve walked over 5 miles today (some groups more) and can’t wait for tomorrow. Enjoy some pictures below. Laila Tov!
