Jewish Geography Zoom Racing – October 11th
A hilarious, fast-paced “zoom race” where alumni from Camp Newman, Swig and Saratoga tap into their social networks to find “The Chosen One” (a virtual game of Jewish Geography!).
Race #1: Samara Leader/A.C. Swedlove vs. Adam Blotner/Sammy Holaschutz
Race #2: Toby Pechner/Rachel Mylan vs. Rabbi Jason Gwasdof/Gordon Lustig
Race #2: Rabbi Mona and Eliot Alfi vs. Joanne/Barbie Cohen
We need ALL our alumni to join us! Support your favorite team by donating to provide an additional clue about “The Chosen One”, to bring on a camp-celebrity guest or one of the coveted RINGERS who can tip the scales. All proceeds will go towards the rebuild of our Porter Creek site.
We’re thrilled to host this event in partnership with Campfires and Color Wars and with the underwriting support of HUC-JIR.
