A group of SITs of 2010 got together for an early Hanukkah celebration!
A few SITs of 2000 gathered to celebrate Hanukkah and all the light we’ve shared together throughout the years. In a time of so much change, unknown, and difficulties we are all faced with in the US, Israel, and everywhere in between, we are stronger together. They shared stories, successes, challenges, hope and love for each other and the Camp Chi community. We keep the Flame burning and we’re so grateful for the lifetime friendships we’ve kindled together and with so many others in this special part of our life, Camp Chi. People come into our lives for a reason, season or lifetime. The SITs of 2000 are all there for each other for a lifetime.
SITs of 2000: Debbie Brin-Leon, Jamie Fintz, Aly Goldman, Marnie Rudick, Jessica Topel, Jen Ryan, Erin Waitz
