I arrived at rabbi camp (also known as the Rabbinic Torah Seminar at the Shalom Hartman Institute) in Jerusalem. So far, my bunkmates, also known as the people sitting in the beit Midrash with me, are nice. The counselors, also known as the faculty, are pretty awesome. They seem to know a lot about their specialty areas and I am already learning a lot. The food so far was good (no really, there was lunch). The day is very packed with activities. My elective is with Avivah Zornberg on women in the Bible. That starts tomorrow since day 1 was filled with introductions. I am really glad there was no swim test so far. I remembered my water bottle and am drinking to say hydrated. I will try to write again soon.
don’t forget to write home. ellie, all sounds good!! xoxo m
