‫מחנה יבנה‬ ‫‪ • Camp Yavneh • 2014‬תשע׳׳ד‬


‫דברי דבי‬ As you all know we celebrated Yavneh’s 70th anniversary this summer at camp and our theme for the summer, the 70 faces of the Torah reflected the awesomeness of all that Yavneh offers! 7 decades—what makes us special by decade… 1940’s: Yavneh was created…a new idea, a Hebrew speaking camp that valued Jewish education. 1950’s: Ahavat Yisrael-love of the new Jewish stateIsrael! 1960’s: Zimriyah and Kerem take shape 1970’s: long hair and winning sports teams 1980’s: growing ruach every year 1990’s; turning Yavneh green, Na’aleh, expanding our camper population in leaps and bounds 2000’s: innovation, new ideas, new programs… always K’lal Yisrael! But our biggest asset: your madrichim… aren’t they the most sababa, achla and generally awesome?? YES- YES- YES!!!!

‫ראש בנות‬ Dear Chanichim and Tzevet 2014, It has been another wonderful season at Machaneh Yavneh.  We have enjoyed watching you on the fields playing sports, swimming in the Agam, hanging out in your bunks, and eating and trying new foods each meal in the Chadar Ochel.  We have loved watching you forge new friendships and develop that independence one can only learn at camp. While you read this letter, it is November, winter is looming or it has settled in, homework is piling high, and memories of Yavneh seem so far away.  Take the time to read through this amazing book that will be a keepsake for you.  Look at it when you feel camp is a distant memory, and know that soon enough we will all, G-d willing, gather together in this special place as for another wonderful summer as Klal Yisrael.   With love, 

Davida & Meir


Lisa’s Page ‫ראש תוכנית‬ This was a summer began unlike any other. With a focus on Eretz Yisrael that kept our hearts beating and our souls connected with every passing day, we watched, waited and learned. As our hearts broke, they also grew knowing that strength for our brothers and sisters in Israel was steadfast and unwavering. Back in Northwood, we quickly realized that with such remarkable roshes and magnificent madrichim, our peulot were beyond impressive! We had an aufruf, and two wedding celebrations (one was real one was not), we had the latest fireworks anywhere in NH, Erev Game Show, Erev Mario Cart, Yesh Li Yom Yom Chag, Josh Lake, Parsha Players, Arayot Scavenger Hunt, Egg Drop, Gold Rush, overnights in camp and out of camp, hikes, and a Maccabiah with many new and exciting additions.

!

As sad as we are to see the summer of 2014 come to an end, there is one good thing about it - we can start the count down again, to the summer of 2015!

This summer's theme, ‫שבעים פנים לתורה‬, The Seventy Faces of Torah, proved to be an amazingly fertile field for exploration.

!

Our ‫ חניכים‬and ‫ מורים‬were able to study focusing on multiple texts and multiple visions of texts. We spent a lot of time focused on respectful conversation and adopted the phrase, "I honor your perspective and..." as a healthful mode for dialogue and debate. Our intention in choosing our theme was a two-fold recognition of our camp. In 2014 Yavneh celebrated its seventieth anniversary and those seventy years of learning and fun have also generated myriad perspectives in torah learning, observance and Jewish living.

!

As Rosh Hinukh, I was able to observe hundreds of faces of children and adults as they learned and taught. Each face shines with a different light and its own special glow. Together the light of these faces brightened our camp and the Jewish world.

! !

With blessings for another seventy years of success, creativity and shining out to the world,

Dear Gurim 2014,

! !

Man, oh man! What an amazing summer we all had together! First month, we started off with a bang by going to Liquid Planet where we zip-lined, swam, and splashed to our hearts content. We had some awesome peulot erevs, including Escape from Beit Rachelcatraz, Erev Mission Impossible, and Erev Superhero. Though at first it seemed odd, our trip to Hannafords was one of the best days! Lastly, who could forget our Zimriyah victory? We got a standing ovation from the entire camp and we won first place for our Shir Shabbat Sh’ketah, Hamalach Hagoel. We carried the fun right into second month with Gary the clown and the carnival.. We had Erev Face, Erev Ninja, and Ma Gu Pu (Ma’alot Gurim Purim). We danced and surfed at Rikudiah, showing what Gurim had to offer. Then, we rounded up the summer with an amazing Maccabiah!

!

We loved being with each and every one of you whether it was for two weeks, one month, or for the whole summer. We hope you all remember the summer as fondly as we do!!

Kfirim 2014,

We can’t believe the summer is already over and it’s time for us to write this letter. From day one to banquet, you made our summer. Every day you impressed us and made us laugh, reminding us how important it is to be goofy and crazy while also being the smart, caring people you all are. From Hollywood to Harry Potter to Ancient Greece, you got into everything and helped us all have an amazing and fun journey together. From Water Country to Kerem Karnival, Mount Major to our Fauvernight, whether we were on adventure in camp or elsewhere you represented Kfirim in the best way. Your creativity and talent always shone through, whether it was Zimriyah or our chadar ochel harmony sing-alongs, caveman stories or YouTube skits. You made us the biggest and best aydah in camp, and when we look back on this summer we will always be honored and proud to have been part of Kfirim 2014. No matter what the line in our shir aydah said, this was never a surprise. You are all celebrities in our book, and Kfirim will always be the aydah to be in!

!

With so much love and best wishes for the future,

!

Dear Arayot,

!

Looking back on this summer, we realize that for aydat Arayot, this summer was a summer of firsts. There were the more general firsts: The first time you were your own aydah and the first time you meltzed. Then there were the more specific ones: During first month-the first time a national anthem was done in zimriyah, the first time skits authored by chanichim were part of ketzev, and the first time there was an achla yom to a stone cutting factory. And during second month- the first time an entire aydah could fit at one table in the chadar ochel, the first time chanichim ran down Loon Mountain, and the first time rainbow colored cupcakes were made by an aydah at camp. Along with these firsts came countless of other hilarious memories-from jamming out to Hoffman’s voice on the Ketzev bus ride to Arayot overnight. Even though it has been a few months since camp ended, we hope that, as you sift through the pages of this yearbook, you remember both these firsts and all the other amazing times we had together as Arayot 2014. These memories will sustain you and carry you through the year until we meet up again for Levi’im 2015!

!

Woweeee! We can't believe how fast this summer went by! Whether it was our trip to the Highland Center, powderpuff, Zimriya or KTV you guys put your all into everything you do! You are all amazing individuals but when you came together as one aydah this summer you became something truly special. We can only imagine how amazing your aydah will continue to become in the years to come.  We sincerely hope that you enjoyed this summer as much as we did! We were honored to have had the opportunity to be your roshes, and be involved in your summer. 

!

In the coming months as you find yourselves walking the halls of a new high school we hope you will remember all that you learned at camp this summer. Always remember that all of your friends from aydat Levi’im 2014 are going through the exact same transition that you are and you will always have each other to lean on. Do yourself a favor; find the people that want you to be you. The people who are your real friends are the ones who feel lucky to have you in their life, and toward whom you feel the same way. Be you, do you, and love you.

! !

We wish you an absolutely amazing year. We believe that we had fun! So much love,

HEY MA’ALOT! (C-caw c-caw)

!

Wow – what a summer! From Acadia to Hampshire Hills, from winning zimriyah to winning powderpuff, and all the way to the millions of pshhh’s at the tisches, we have had quite the ride. Maybe you made a new friend. Maybe you learned how to play tachat. Maybe you flailed a little (or a lot). Maybe you stepped outside your comfort zone. Whatever it is that you did during your Ma’alot summer, we are just so proud of you. You all grew into mature, responsible, confident, and wacky individuals, as well as formed an unbelievably tight-knit mishpacha. You all became leaders – whether you were a rosh for minimac, spoke at the tisch, included your peers, did hand motions for zimriyah, spray-painted rocks for gold rush, got Meltzer of the Week, or volunteered to help out, each and every one of you stepped up. You are all incredible people, and we can’t wait to see how much more you grow as you enter your Kerem summer. Thank you for being an exceptionally awesome, kind, and enthusiastic ayda – we feel so lucky to have been able to watch you shine.

Dearest Kerem '14, For the longest time Kerem 2014 was something intangible to look forward to, far in the future. From almost winning Zimriyah in Gurim, to one of the first times camp heard you chanting at Zimriyah '09 through Arayot and Leviim when you really made a name for yourselves in camp all the way to the end of Ma'alot when you got on stage in the Ben Zvi for your first Adon Olam at musaf, the summer of 2014 was a dream yet to be realized. When Kerem Tash’ad finally came, no one could have predicted the journey we were about to embark on. Not one of us truly knew what the summer had in store, the immeasurable amount which every single person in the ayda would grow or the love we all felt and will always feel, unique to Kerem '14.

!

Every day of the summer we learned together (and taught the rest of camp!) what it means to be Kerem. Whether running back and forth between play practices and zim meetings, or leading Friday night zmirot with enough ruach to blow off the roof of the Ben Zvi, you took every single opportunity both as individuals and as an ayda to prove that indeed, as stated in our shir ayda “mipoh ve’ad sham, Kerem hamanhigim” of Machaneh Yavneh. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Every day I felt so lucky to be watching you, these young adults, encourage the Gurs to dance at Kabbalat Shabbat, show the Kfirs by example that shira can be a blast, be role models for the Arayot chanichim, and give Leviim and Ma’alot something to aspire to as they approach their own Kerem summers. Your passion for camp and your drive to make it an amazingly special place for every single individual is inspiring. As you sang with all your hearts in shir ayda: “kol shana hayu lanu kshayim” (every summer we had challenges) no matter what came our way, we have only been strengthened. Your motivation to succeed shone through at L’chu Neranena, in your frustration when ideas couldn’t be realized and when planning and running such incredibly creative and fun peulot for your chanichim. You went to each other when struggling with issues involving your chanichim and would come to us for more help in finding answers. It was an honor to watch you grow into the most caring, respectful, mature, fun, and goofy group of people ever to run Kerem Karnival, sing shir ayda last at Zimriyah, and Walk for Hope at York Beach. Speaking of the cancer walk...let’s not forget the crazy high bar you set for future Kerems and the difference you made for people in need by raising a monumental $7,333! So many wonderful, WONDERFUL accomplishments. You should be very proud.

!

Of course, we had a lot of good old-fashioned fun, too. Was it necessary to drink ice pop juice at KTV? No, but it’s colorful and we like the taste! We had Erev Paint, grilled outside BK, stargazed, got creative with Kerem’s Got Talent and Iron Chef, cruised around Boston and simply stayed up late in the bunks, and loved every minute of it. At our tisches we had the chance to let out all our emotions from the week, and oh boy did we. Each week’s tisch was drastically different from the last, and each one was perfect. Whether through stories, song or silence, our ayda continued to get closer with every tisch we had. Following each, we started off most weeks kindling a fire that would keep us going all week long.

!

Over six years I have had the privilege of watching each and every one of you bring something special to this ayda and to Yavneh. Camp will never be the same, neither will any of you, and neither will I. Maya, Yossi, Miles, Jessica and I are so proud of you, and are so lucky to have been able to be on this life-changing journey with you. I have learned so much from every single one of you, and I hope you will always remember what you have learned from each other and the love you feel for your fellow Kerem. Keep these feelings with you, learn from your mistakes, and continue to do amazing things as you did this summer for the rest of your lives. Last but definitely not least, always remember to smile :)

All (and I mean ALL) my love,

Jesse
