Today’s activity is to call up someone just to make them smile. You can call a grandparent who’d love to hear from you or a friend with whom you haven’t spoken in a while, or maybe call someone who wasn’t in camp today to ask them how they’re feeling.

I hope we won’t have to fast on Tishah B’av because we will be celebrating in the most kadosh (holy) city in the world (in fact, I’m writing this in advance and I hope that by the time this post goes up, we will be standing in front of the third Beis Hamikdash-temple-), but if we’re not, I’d like to wish you all a meaningful Tishah B’av and for those of you who are fasting, an easy fast.
