The Beauty of Shabbat

Sunday, 11 July 2010

There is nothing….nothing like Shabbat at camp.

In their “Shabbat whites,” the entire camp sings their way into the Beit Tefillah.

A sea of white…

The Two Rachels lead us in song.

Even Peach loves Shabbos!

Shavua tov from JewCamp!

      Yep, yep. A bunch of people I know were just there for the reunion. Have so much fun! And let’s compare notes when you get home.

    I went to a camp like that, Ramah in the Poconos, for four summers. I learned a lot there. I learned how to paddle a canoe, to improve my tennis serve, various arts and crafts. I also learned spoken Hebrew. But the most important thing I learned was that the non-Orthodox Jews of America are living a double lie. They believe that being a Jew in America is lechatchila(a halachic term meaning a preferred option as opposed to something that one would rather not do or has done mistakenly and must live with the consequenses.) They also believe that Judaism that is not based on divine revelation of both the written and oral Torah can be a real expression of the Jewish spiritual tradition
    Sarah, I sincerely hope that you will find a way to return; both to Hashem and Israel.

    Dear David,

    I am so sorry that was the sum total of your experience at Ramah.

    Jewish life has been present, and even flourished, outside of HaAretz since 587BCE. Jews remain in the Diaspora for a variety of legitimate reasons.

    Furthermore, there is more than one legitimate way to understand Revelation. I would doubt very much that “they” all hold the exact same approach to Torah as you cite here.

    Though I do share your hope that I will one day return to Israel (sooner than the Messianic time), be assured that there is no need to be concerned about my return to God; I never left.

    Thanks for taking the time to read AND comment.

    You have the right to be wrong.
