Lauren C., Age 12
Tribe of Issachar

Friday night was Shabbat. Everyone got dressed up for the evening. The whole camp then walked leisurely to dinner. The meal was very peaceful. Twister said prayers over the candles and grape juice, and then the challah. After dinner, we went to Tabernacle for the evening service. We sang songs, said prayers, and recited the different blessings. In the morning, we slept in, had breakfast, then went to Tabernacle for more prayers. We sang more songs, recited more Hebrew prayers, and then read that morning’s haftarah portion. Shabbat at Camp Gilgal was a lot of fun!
