Event Description

Camp Gesher returns for 4th year & Peace Garden Summer Camp Debut


Camp Gesher (a Bridge to Friendship), a joint program of Havurah Shir Hadash and Temple Emek Shalom, is a Jewish summer day camp for all kids entering kindergarten through 6th grade in the Fall, regardless of religious affiliation. This summer will mark its 4th annual day-camp and the 2nd year that Andrea Shupack will serve as the director. The camp will run from August 2-6, Monday through Friday from 9 AM – 3 PM daily.



Shupack says, “Our excellent and dedicated staff of counselors and specialists make this camp a spectacular opportunity for kids to play and learn together in a Jewish setting. Camp is filled with arts and crafts, sports, music, drama, field trips, and more. It is a great way for kids to build friendships and a positive Jewish identity.” We strive to integrate Jewish values, themes and practice into all activities from eating lunch and playing games to arts and crafts.

The week culminates in a family Shabbat experience at Temple Emek Shalom on Friday evening, August 6th at 5:00 p.m. Parents will have an opportunity to celebrate Shabbat in community and enjoy a taste of what the kids experienced at camp.

Registration is now open. You can pick up a registration form at either Temple Emek Shalom 541-488-2909 or Havurah Shir Hadash 541-488-7716. For any questions, or to receive a form by email or fax, contact Andrea Shupack at AndreaShupack@gmail.com.

Debuting this summer, the Peace Garden Preschool & Kindergarten, directed by Linda Cohen, is offering two weeks of summer camp for 3-7 year olds: Session 1, July 5-9 and Session 2, August 16-20.

The camp, with a maximum of nine children per session, will offer creative play in the sun and shade of the old walnut tree, arts & crafts, song & story, water play and gardening in an intimate setting. Cohen has been director of Peace Garden since 2002 and has 17 years experience in early childhood education. Call Linda at 541-488-8887 for more info. Register by June 10 for July and by July10 for August session.

We honor and teach the value of diversity. Children of all backgrounds are welcomed. The Havurah is located at 185 N. Mountain Ave. in Ashland.

No Longer a Conspiracy Theory: CIA Director Admits Plans of Aerosol Spraying for Geoengineering | The Free Thought Project

Another example is the array of technologies—often referred to collectively as geoengineering—that potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change. One that has gained my personal attention is stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.

Treasure Trove of Documents Released Showing DuPont Knowingly Poisoned Entire Communities’ Drinking Water | Trofire

For the last few weeks, America’s Lawyer and Ring of Fire host Mike Papantonio has been in court facing off against DuPont. This is the second major DuPont trial that Pap has tried in the last 9 months over the company’s decision to pollute and poison an entire community with a chemical used in the manufacturing of Teflon. That chemical is known as C8, and it is a highly toxic chemical that causes severe adverse effects in people who are exposed to it, and the exposure continues for years since the chemical is biopersistent, meaning that it doesn’t get flushed out of the body.

Norway rewards Brazil with $1 billion for keeping the Amazon full of trees | Quartz

Brazil has more than risen to the task. By enforcing strict protection laws, promoting education efforts, and withholding loans to local counties that clear too much of the forest, the country has scaled back its forest destruction rate by 75%. It’s estimated that Brazilian farmers and ranchers have saved more than 33,000 square miles (roughly 53,100 square kilometers) of forest—equivalent to 14.3 million soccer fields—from being cut down.

Norway becomes first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation | Europe | News | The Independent

Norway has become the first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation.The Norwegian parliament pledged the government’s public procurement policy will become deforestation-free after a committee of MPs recommended imposing regulations to ensure the state did "not contribute to deforestation of the rainforest". Norway funds forest conservation projects worldwide and also supports human rights programmes for forest communities.
