Silk Art and Tie-Dye: Boker Tzrif & Shoafim; Meet Yehudit Harris, Silk Art
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, making beautiful items using silk art techniques, as well as bright, colorful tie dyed tee shirts. They were accompanied by their madricha, and also guided by Yehudit Harris, Rosh Silk Art. Yehudit lives in the Arnona neighborhood in Jerusalem and is here at Palmer with her three adorable boychiks and husband Akiva Harris, Rosh Tarbut Yisraelit (Israeli Culture). In Israel, she words at a rehabilitation center as an occupational therapist and also teaches karate. She is imparting wonderful skills to our chanichim in the regular chugim as well as on boker tzrif. What fun!
