It’s Maccabiah/Color War/Israel Day/Capture-the-Flag!!! Make sure to pack clothes that are Red, Yellow, Blue AND Green so you will be ready for whatever team you are on.
Tie-Dye – Pack1-3 white, cotton items to tie-dye (shirts, socks, pillow cases, etc. – NO towels or full sheets)
Trip or special programs – make sure to follow the list and get your questions addressed.
