Machon/Nivonim Kishroniyah Musical!
Please enjoy the amazing musical that was written and performed by our Machon/Nivonim chanichim/ot (campers) in our Make Your Own Musical Kishroniyah group!
Led by Landon Braverman, these kids created this complete production entirely from scratch!! They came up with the idea, wrote the script, wrote the songs and music, and then performed their extraordinary creation in front of the rest of their edot! I’m bowled over by what these amazing kids accomplished!
The sound quality in the video isn’t the best, so take a look at their full script to appreciate the brilliance of what they wrote.
Kishroniyah is one of our centerpiece programs for our Tzad Bet (B-Side) chanichim (campers). Kishroniyah comes from the Hebrew word kishron, which means skill. For one week each summer, we invite an array of high-level specialists into camp to run intense special programs for our older campers. Machon and Nivonim have 12 hours of Kishroniyah from Sunday-to-Wednesday, and Magshimim and Bogrim have 8 hours of Kishroniyah from Wednesday-to-Friday.
