Last Saturday, Jan 20, BCRC held its first 'Winter Escape', at thd Freedom Center in Leesburg. This event was an adaptation of an annual Winter event held at Rabbi Amy's Rochester temple, which gives people a chance to escape that mid-Winter cabin fever and romp in the snow. Well, we not only had no snow but had one of the warmest days of the winter! So our Winter Escape involved a hike around the lake and outdoor activities like tree climbing, as well as indoor activities such as games and a skit illustrating this week's torah portion organized by Rabbi Amy. Did you know that this week, not the week of Passover, is the week for the portion about Moses and the exodus from Egypt? Before a great dinner, Charles Gibson led a cooking lesson in how to make a Shivat Hamanim (7 species of Tu B'Shevat) salad.
