Shoafimers Join the “It’s a Good Life” Chug!


For over twenty years, we’ve had a special tradition offered exclusively to Shoafimers: the “It’s a Good Life” chug!  This chug for fun-loving Shoafimers meets once or twice a week, and we do silly peulot (activities) together.  To enter the chug, interested Shoafimers must write a twenty-two-and-a-half word essay, on a creative canvas of their choice (paper is not allowed), explaining why they must be allowed entrance to the chug.  This morning, Maor (Rosh Shoafim) and I had a blast reviewing the incredibly creative and funny array of entries.  Here’s Maor with one:


And here is one of our very favorites from this year’s entries, this one went the extra mile:


After aruchat tzohorayim (lunch), we had our inaugural meeting of the Good Life chug, and drinking a blue drink (a Good Life tradition) we toasted Machaneh Ramah and Shoafim 2016 and our Good Lives.
