Welcoming Shabbat

Shabbat shalom from Camp Tawonga! Shabbat is a time to rest, reflect and feel connected to our own personal form of Judaism and spirituality. Though of course a joyous day, it’s also bittersweet knowing that this is the last Shabbat we will celebrate together as a community. How lucky are we that we get to pause and look back on both Session IV and the season as a whole and truly cherish each and every moment we’ve spent together building this unique and transformative community.  

As Session IV gathered for the Shabbat Stroll (where everyone walks through Camp holding our Torah and playing music) and we made our way to the Dining Hall, the entire community physically and emotionally embraced each other with love and gratitude for one another. Then we closed out the night with our traditional freilach (yiddish for “happy” or “cheerful”) song session and unit Kabbalat Shabbat services where every bunk had the opportunity to welcome in Shabbat in their own way.
