Welcome U! After month's of endless planning and an overdose of interesting conversations and renovations, contemplations and in general just applications, Camp Chayolei Hamelech 5773 has officially begun its greatest summer in the history of camps ever! Getting to the bus is apparently not one of the many talents that parents have. A simple game of “I moved but didn’t leave” was all that was needed to convince the parents to put their kids on the bus, instead of waiting until their son would be the last on the bus (apparently two parents were waiting outside and no one wanted to be second to last). Although not everyone made it, some had to chase the bus all the way to camp, this did save them a lot of money I hope. After a rather intense bus ride some of us made it to camp (except SDSES who missed the bus). That is when we ate the first pizza ala blacketo ever in the history of man! Things started getting serious after a while of having fun in the Shul, when the head staff HCMTS and HCLLS first gave the most unforgettable fiery scary wacky funny high five… no I’m getting

So where were we? Right the speeches. There were speeches. But the most elevating moment was when the head counselor called out our names to stand in the front of the Shul (elevating because we had to stand) and announced our counselors who almost crashed into us and sent us halfway across the Shul. Luckily they stopped running before it was too late.

The Toichenazation Zimri ben Salu commited a sin at the end of last week's parshah, . Pinchas wanted to make sure that the wrongdoing of Zimri would not bring HaShem's anger upon Bnei Yisrael. And so rather than let Zimri continue, he risked his own life and killed Zimri. This week's parshah begins by telling us that HaShem rewarded Pinchas. When HaShem saw that he risked his life for the sake of the Jewish people, He told Moshe: "Pinchas turned My anger away from B'nei Yisrael.... Therefore I will give him a covenant of peace." When praising Pinchas, HaShem calls him: "zealous." A zealous person puts aside concern for himself and does whatever has to be done to fulfill the will of HaShem. A person may have to risk his life in gashmiyus or make sacrifices in ruchniyus, but because he is zealous, he doesn't think about himself. He has one thought in mind:

what HaShem wants. There is another person in the Tanach who is called "zealous" - Eliyahu Hanavi, who said: "I have been very zealous for the sake ofHaShem." Actually, our sages teach us that "Pinchas is Eliyahu," so it is not a surprise that they were both zealous for the sake ofHaShem. When Eliyahu Hanavi said this, he also told HaShem how disturbed he was by the wrongdoings of the Jewish people. He cried out toHaShem, telling Him how many of His people had gone astray. HaShem was not pleased to hear Eliyahu criticize B'nei Yisrael. HaShem wants us to always look for good in others. And that good is always there; we may just have to look a little harder to find it.
for all time to come. He would be there to see how the Jewish people are faithful to HaShem, and how they keep His mitzvos. HaShem taught Eliyahu that a person who feels zealous should show extra measures of Ahavas Yisrael; he must always try to find merit in the Jewish people. This became Eliyahu's mission - pointing out the good in others and in this way, bringing people close to each other. And so when thenavi Malachi describes how Eliyahu Hanavi will announce the Geulah, he says: "He will turn the hearts of fathers to the children and the hearts of children to the fathers." And when the Rambam describes Eliyahu's mission, he says: "He will come solely to establish peace."
And so HaShem appointed Eliyahu as the Angel of the Bris, and instructed him to attend the bris milah of every Jewish child
As we join together in Achdus and Ahavas Yisrael - which give us the strength to overcome the challenges of the galus EliyahuHanavi will certainly be there to seek out our merits. He will point out the abundance of Ahavas Yisrael that we have, and will lose no time in announcing the coming of the Geulah.
NADDZYZS blew us all away as we watched one camper after another put their life on the line for the doctor, and boy did he give them a good treatment.
We were also introduced to pinkyshaking day which takes place this time of year, mainly in China where people have stuffed noses.

In the house!
Welcome! I hope you had a first few smashing days in camp, I know I did… you’re probably reading this while drinking your soup, pretending that it is your Bubbies chicken soup. Well, if you are, that’s not good, you have to get up on the benches, and sing songs and get a lot of Laffy Taffy’s!!! The more Laffy Taffy’s you have, the more fun camp is, because you can read the joke, and eat the Taffy! (Most times, in normal circumstances, Taffy’s are sweet, not salty). I was really
surprised when I asked the campers at night activity to do some NASTY stuff, they did it right away, with a big smile on their face, (And I’m supposed to be the crazy one!) so since I see that this year we have the most amazing, (craziest) campers of all time, I’m really excited about next week, and the even more crazy stuff I’m preparing for you! On a final note, many campers asked me why my name is Dr. Z, and I heard a lot of answers, but only one of the campers got it right. He said, when you go to the eye doctor, he asks you to read the letters off the paper, and the biggest
Comic of the week:
letter on the paper is a Z!!!! A big Z! So that’s why my name is Dr. Z…. WHAT! IM JUST JOKING! IF YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW BY NOW, ASK YOUR COUNSELOR! Wishing you a songful, Laffy Taffy-full, hot pepper-full, soda-full, Shabbos competition-full Shabbos!

Science for Oholei-Torahnicks
The reason why the babaganush is brown is because this way it is camouflaged when it spills on a brown shirt. The reason why the sky is blue is for the same reason why the grass is green. The reason why Oholei Torahnicks really don’t learn science in camp is because they can’t read English. The reason why this sentence is cut off is still not understood, no one has an
