Yom Sport (Color War): Breakout, Tzad Aleph (A-Side), Team Meeting and Apache Run!
The big day has arrived! The start date and time is always a closely guarded secret here at our machaneh (camp)! The chanichim (campers) of adat ha-Nivonim have been planning this grand event for many days, as an integral part of their Leadership Training this kayitz (summer). The Yom Sport breakout yesterday was a very creative one, that incorporated the story of the deposition of Rabban Gamliel (for details, see *). During the morning Limmud (Education) sessions, all the edot studied the story of the deposition. Then, immediately after aruchat tzaharayim (lunch), our Tzevet Limmud (Education staff) presented a play for Tzad Aleph chanichim about the deposition, highlighting the most salient features of a good leader (as demonstrated in the negative by Rabban Gamliel!): being respectful of your constituency, knowing as much as possible about your constituents, achieving an honest self-awareness, and being as inclusive as possible. The play concluded with…the wild burst of Nivonimers announcement Yom Sport Breakout! Off to the races! The photos above and below are the next two events following the breakout: team meeting and apache race.
