Our second Shabbos in camp was another great one. After our first full week of intense leagues and fun trips, everyone got some much needed rest on Shabbos. Rabbi Granofsky, Rosh Yeshiva of Ohr David in Jerusalem, was with for Shabbos, along with Camp Sports alumnus Jeremy Lavitt. They both gave meaningful speeches to the NCSYers over the course of Shabbos. There were Rita’s ices in the afternoon for anyone who learned a little, and Rabbi Cooper led an inspiring ebbing to end off Shabbos.
After Shabbos, we had open sports for two hours on the fields. Yet another rugby game was played, as we continue to integrate rugby into camp, as well as pickup basketball, football, and ultimate. Afterwards, we had a pizza Melaveh Malka to go along with our first ever video competition. The NCSYers were given time to make a video/commercial showing the power of the Shofar on Rosh Hashanah. The top 3 groups were entered into a raffle for dugout seats at the Baltimore Orioles game, and the winning group won a free meal at Dougie’s. All of the videos were hilarious, but the judges voted Yaakov Abramowitz’s group, consisting of Yehuda Alter and Eyal Abadi, as the best. What a way to close out yet another amazing week at Camp Sports!
