There are often a lot of vegetarians, so that non-meat choices will be available at every meal. We have reviewed the menus with the camp in advance to make sure that there is something for everyone. It is essentail that you carefully denote your dietary restrictions and allergies on the registration form.

There will be four options:

  1. Standard

Kosher: Is the food Kosher?

  • All ingredients Kosher with heckscher, but no mishgeach 
  • Diary/Meat separated
  • Paper plates, etc. to maintain dairy/meat separation
  • Glatt Kosher & vegan meals available at no additional cost, however only to those who specify the need at registration AND register during early bird or regular registration.  These options are not available to those who register during late registration due to our need to provide the camp with a headcount so that arrangements can be made for them.  Also, if you sign up for them, you must eat them, not the mainstream meal.

Torah

Torah Reading: Parshat Re'eh interpretation by  Chabab  

Re'eh, Reeh, R'eih, or Ree (רְאֵה‬ — Hebrew for "see", the first word in the parashah) is the 47th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה‬, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the fourth in the Book of Deuteronomy. It constitutes Deuteronomy 11:26–16:17. In the parashah, Moses set before the Israelites the choice between blessing and curse. Moses instructed the Israelites in the laws that they were to observe, including the law of a single centralized place of worship. Moses warned against following other gods and their prophets and set forth the laws of kashrut, tithes, the Sabbatical year, the Hebrew slave, firstborn animals, and the three pilgrim festivals.

Parashat Re’eh Discussion Questions

  • In everyday life, how do you think God blesses and curses us?
  • Why is what we eat so important that Moses adds it to his last speech before the people?
  • What does it mean that in the promised land God will choose a place to give God’s Name habitation? Is there such a place in your community?
