omething about Friday
evenings usually sets them
apart from other times in the
week. Last summer, a warm
Friday evening proved particularly
memorable.
Instead of being at home in
Jerusalem, I was in Canada's fabled
Algonquin Park at Camp Tamakwa,
where my wife Galya and I were
working and our children were
campers.
At 7:30 p.m., Galya and I joined
Tamakwa's 400 campers and staff—
many from Michigan — outside at
an amphitheater facing South Tea
Lake. The view was spectacular, the
tranquility overwhelming and the air
intoxicating. A soothing breeze blew

golden glow.
The occasional call of a loon was a
further reminder that there is no
greater delight to the senses than
nature's timeless spectacle, especially in
Algonquin Park, a few hours north of
Toronto.
Every Friday, in a time-honored tra-
dition, Tamakwans assemble after din-
ner at the Slope. Galya and I sat at the
top of the Slope's wooden bleachers,
marveling at the perfect combination
of water, sky, earth, rock and trees
before us. The peacefulness was almost
hypnotic, doubly so for its sharp con-
trast to our recent reality in Jerusalem.
From where we were now sitting at
the Slope, Israel seemed far removed,
on another planet.
Founded in 1936 by Detroit native
Lou Handler, Tamakwa is a nonreli-
gious, predominantly Jewish camp
that welcomes the onset of Shabbat in
its own way — first at dinner with the
lightina of candles and reciting the
b and afterwards with a secular
Kiddush,
service at the Slope.
