This unique program is for campers in grade 9, and offers the option of a one month session at camp, or an incredible full summer program, with the first month at camp, and then 3 weeks touring Israel for a once in a lifetime adventure. Living in the CIT Village, these campers spend 3 days as big-brothers/sisters, and also participate in the “Adventure Series”, which includes white water rafting, go-karting, the camp-wide talent show, water slides in St. Sauveur, and a 3 day hiking or canoeing trip.

Shabbat Shalom fromYCC. This week’s Shabbat Shalom greeting comes from Rabbi Avi Finegold, Rabbi at the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue and Lead Educator of the Jewish Learning Lab:
One of the most distinctive features of the High Priests garb, described in this weeks Torah portion of Teztaveh, was a row of bells that was sewn on to the hem of his outer garment. While I am no stranger to accessorizing, it rarely occurs to any fashion designer to attach an audible accessory to clothing. Most people prefer to let clothing maintain a visual impact and remain silent. The 19th Century and bible commentator Rabbi Yaakov Tzvi Mecklenburg points out that the purpose of such an ornament was to serve as an additional reminder to the High Priest of the duties of his office and his responsibility to the community wherever he is. In a way it served much like tzitzit do, something perpetually present to remind one of God. The Kohel Gadol, the High Priest, was in such a rarefied position that seeing his clothing wasn’t enough, he had to hear the “voice” of his office wherever he went.
As a rabbi, I can relate to this in multiple ways. I “see” my role every time I don the Canonical robes reserved for the Rabbi of my community. I also hear the “voice” of my community when I am in public and am asked if I am a Rabbi because of my Kippa. This mindfulness need not be reserved for those who hold religious offices. Rather we all can find ways in which we have constant reminders of our relationship to our community and our spiritual centres. ... See MoreSee Less
