Happy July 4th! We're back after a restful Shabbat at a camp currently decked out in red, white, and blue. We're excited to start another week at Perlman, so here are today's stories! (PS: Check out our brand-new Twitter here!)
Studies Show Shabbat Is At Least 200 Times More Relaxing Than Not Shabbat
This week we celebrated our first Shabbat, allowing us to "pause" for a whole day to reflect on our first week and give ourselves some much needed rest. After a Friday night and Saturday day full of song, dance, and prayer, we ended the holiday with a community Havdallah service in the large quad. Teens, led by Song Bringers Eric Hunker and Zach Singer, were asked to step forward depending on songs they identified with before "Hey Jude" by the Beatles brought everyone together.
Dorm 7 celebrates OT victory over Dorm 9, briefly rekindling American interest in soccer
Despite a lot of talk, Dorm 7 couldn't back it up with the walk through the 50 minutes of regulation play at this Shabbat's soccer match. Late goals scored by Ori and Jory, who rhyme on purpose, kept the game at a 1-1 tie before Alex Metzman (Bulgaria, Dorm 7) was able to score the winning overtime goal for Dorm 7. Look out for him in the 2014 World Cup.
Whose ILTC is it Anyway?
On Saturday night, everyone took part in a drama-inspired improv activity. This was used not only as a fun way to get to know everyone, but also gave participants experience in thinking on the spot. As a leader in BBYO, you always need to be on your toes! The teens split up by dorms and were lead by Sam Levine, Steven Miller, Tierney Torchin, Matt Lopez, and staff. Games like Taxi, 4-in-1, and park bench gave everyone a good laugh.
