"Difference. That's happening here. Verses in a lot of other torres steady spaces is that we often go to torah studies. That are led by a person that we really admire. Because we're there to learn their torah. What i'm really trying to do is find out what you see in it and do everything i can. As an educator to uplift and make you feel excited impassioned and empowered to see what you need to see in that piece of tax. But i think as i started to look for martinez and why Rebecca in the first place is because they agree that that purpose of trying to get other people to find their confidence in their beauty. Torah is why you're coming to the tour studio is one trying to do as space. Y'all i would rather find a really good teacher with just enough background to maneuver around to figure it out. Then i would find somebody who is excited to tell everybody all of their incredible theories. No judgment incredible. I don't have anybody in mind just to be clear. I would much rather find out. My students have to say than what a teacher has to say. And i think that that's an experience of That doesn't always gets translated into other tourist city spaces the more that i'm hearing from you. Maybe i'm like creating this narrative. I'm hearing that it makes sense to me that you were a camp counselor. The way that you're talking about torah study in the way that you're talking about facilitating groups. It feels similar to. I mean i was a camp counselor for a few years and it was at a jewish camp. So i i think about that experience in the context of you know the work i do now in jewish spaces and i say now and i think i've said in the past and i think i'll say you know in decades that in certain ways the most important work i ever have done and maybe ever will do is that i was a camp counselor. If i'm a parent. I think that will be a more important thing but like until then. It's a remarkable rule and there are ways in which what i talk about like the constant. Yes and the constant improv game of summer camp counseling. We're like you are constantly doing everything in your power to take whatever comes out of campers mouth and have it shift the space. Have it contribute to the camp culture. Have like that feels similar to what you're describing with. Wanting to help people find their torah. And have it not be about you because as a camp counselor if you're focus on you that's a real problem so i guess in my off my rocker here. Do you draw connections between camp. Counselor ring i'm using counselors verb in the same way. I use ruby as a verb rabbis verb. Do you draw on that experience in how you facilitate these horror studies. You couldn't be less off track. I don't think there's anything in my life that i do. That doesn't feel like it came from camp but this energy came. Actually i think from my experience as a cit director so i was in charge of the counselor in training program for three years and it will forever be probably the best job of her head because i took this group of seventeen year olds who love camp with their entire heart and are also seventeen and over the course of two months of me teaching them giving them tools and working with them and building relationships. They went from there for camp. Because it's for them because they love it because they are trying to have their best time to people who were actually to take care of other human beings and make camp about other human beings and it was about empowering them with the tools that i have to make them the best counselors possible but the humidity of their their own people. And they're not gonna look like many me's running around being counselors. they're gonna look like their version of counseling. And it really made me think about. If i'm not trying to teach somebody had to be me. I have to give them tools that they can use to make themselves different and better and stronger. And i think that that definitely comes into my teaching of torah. I'm not looking to give people my torah. I wanna give people tools that they can use an immediately absorb so that they are actively doing it on their own. And i have to have that humility to say. I don't get to control what they do with it. Which is the hardest thing. It's hard for us when we talk about the jewish future. It's hard for us when we talk about our kids. It's hard for us when we talk about our work or tweet once it's out in the world we don't get to decide what's going to happen to it. We just have to do our best to make sure that people are given the tools that they need to be their best version of themselves and all of that comes from shoutout to kindling. hilltop camp. Clap clap clap. at the end of it of malibu will no longer unfortunately Both of the wilshire boulevard. Temple camps burned down a few years ago. But those are my homes and They will forever be the reason i am am. I'd love to talk a little bit. About what the torah is in a paradigm like this because it strikes me that when we think about who were talking to in this series that if you talk to academics. They're interested in the truth. What really happened. you know what. What's the actual historical fact here if you talk to people that are coming from a more traditional approach like no no i understand. I don't even that interested in the text. What i'm interested in is what the commentator said about the texture with thomas said about the text. Because that's actually what created judaism and i'm interested in practicing judaism and the idea that we're coming to the torah with neither of those mindsets that were coming to the torah just to read this taxed and in some ways it's like a mirror or however we might think about it as a metaphor. Is there way to see this. As a new way of being jewish that actually surprisingly didn't exist because when in history did anybody ever read the text of the torah and regular people and think about what they thought about it like that i don't think has ever been a practicing judaism until recently so then. Is it something new. Or how do you see the role of tower the purpose of terror when you're committed to an educational approach an approach like you say it's not really about education. It's about practice like yoga. So this is jewish practice. So what what. Judaism is it. So i think this also answers lex question for a while ago that it did not answer yet about what that emotional piece of torah is torah as a story and then as a written book. And then it's something that we've passed down has been the core of judaism for likely more than.

"I wanna call attention to three of them in particular. When is the plagues project. It's a collection of thirty plus videos that we've done along its partners. The second is something called virtual seder. It's a collection of about seventy five really short videos like two minutes each that you through the entire harare the entire seder project and you can watch them before passover to get a little bit inspired into come up with some ideas for your seder or you can actually watch them during the seder and the third resource. It's there is a link to a construction videos about how to make your own mott's at home particularly you're on soft. Matza soft matza can be kosher passover and check it out we actually have an orthodox rabbi who is teaching you how to soft matza there again you can find all that at. Www dot jewish live dot org slash passover dash twenty twenty one. Another thing that. I just want to mention briefly. Is that a book that i translated. We've talked about it in the past on this podcast called the orchard is finally out as an audio book so if you want to read a really interesting book about the beginnings of rabbinic judaism after the second temple was destroyed and actually think a lot about how that time has similar to our time. I think that you really will enjoy this book. You can find it at audible dot com as well as anywhere else that you might find audiobooks. Let's shift gears to our interview for today as you'll recall we're in this series where we're exploring the bible from a variety of angles. We've spoken to academic bible scholars about their work and their discoveries. We've learned about how. I choose relate to the bible and today. We're going to speak with an educator and entrepreneur who's trying to change the way that all jews relate to the bible our guest. Liana workman is the founder of a new organization called the tour studio. The tourists studio is a radically accessible and inclusive torah learning space. It was created to be a place for people to learn torah without having to leave any part of their identity behind the terrorist studio believes the torah is better with your whole honest voice. Sharing ideas struggles excitement and joy. Liana werthmann was raised in los angeles across a variety of jewish denominations. She began teaching as a teenager at the car. Spiritual community and also as a counselor at the gambling hilltop camp which is one of the wilshire. Boulevard she's been working with jewish children and teenagers for over a decade. She's also studied herself although she likes to emphasize how much of a what we call a regular do she is. She's taken three years of tomek glasses and his reaching the intermediate level of biblical hebrew. And as she says she recognizes a lot of aramaic words she spent a summer studying at parties institute for jewish learning in israel and also at the hebrew union college. Summer bait me josh. Before starting the tourist studio she worked for two years at temple. Israel hollywood as the youth director and now as she starting up the tourist studio. She's also doing a side gig as a fulltime student in the masters of jewish educational leadership program at the school education at hebrew union college. Under the tutelage of our previous guests. Miriam heller stern. I should also say liana is a longtime listener to judaism unbound who we connected with years ago because she did some amazing synthesis sketching of our ten commandments of jewish innovation. That we talked about long ago so as always we're really excited to welcome a longtime listener. First-time caller to the podcast. Liana werthmann welcome to judaism unbounded to real thrilled to have you as a guest on the podcast. Thank you so much. It's great to be here. Can you talk a little bit about why. It's called the terrorist studio art happening in the studio. The tourist studio at does not make any art yet. We also don't do any yoga yet. But that is kind of what we're modeled off of. Basically our business model is what a yoga studio does. We are teaching torah every single week. Multiple classes different teachers. We are doing that every single week. And you don't have to sign up for a large amount of classes in advance. The yoga studio model has really been away for me to make sure that i'm creating a space that feels accessible for people so that they can be practicing torah in learning the scale and making it a part of their life it feels nourishing so i wanna get into that a little more deeply. I'm curious just the way that you put it so interesting. So when you think about torah in the same category as yoga i think about i think about yoga and i kind of understand what yoga's for. Its practice of some degree of exercise. Some degree of of centering of breathing of bringing calm. When i think about i tend to think of it as nothing that only i think of it this way i think most people think of it as something that you do in a different way than we think about yoga when when you think about a torah practice as something that i might just drop in on occasionally in the same way they might do yoga and have a really great experience doing it that once but it doesn't necessarily mean that i'm now going to do it every day. Could you talk a little bit about your sense of what is and what tourist studies. all about. Torah study is something that we all should have access to whether you try it once like a yoga and that was enough. You did it but you knew you could do it. You went and you tried it and you were able to do it. Maybe it was hard. Maybe it was awesome but once was enough but the fact that it's then available at other times means that you're really able to build up a practice on your own even if we don't activate it even if we don't actually use it we should all feel that we're allowed to have access to torah..

"Okay so stop me if you WANNA, talk about any of the stuff because there's a lot of talk about, and it's a big seen. Her series of seen so rick continues to die on his horse as he flashes back to rehearsals farm he and Herschel talk about the goal of building, this new society and finding his family. At Herschel tells him to wake up, and maybe we could break here because he wakes up for one point seven seconds no. I. Got Scott Wilson back. Scott Wilson's always been one of the really good calming forces for good characters on the show. You know he's name checked in every damn season like Maggie always like that's kind of her northstar moral compass like after Jeffrey Demon. Dada. Can you remember what the hell that guy's name was like for? A long time was kind of the moral compass of the show Dale Dale and then you. You Got Herschel and I liked that he kind of came back knees in clean cut farmer days, and he's living on his beautiful at Paradise version of the farm and it's it's good. I'd like him talking about You know like Rick apologizing for failing Maggie and he's like Michael Strong and my grandsons. My grandsons is GonNa make her that much stronger, and you know. Rick worrying about keeping his family together and and. Herschel! Saying you don't need to do that. Son Like it. It's it's a really good scene and. Know I. Kind Kinda got a little bit of a father figure from the way Scott Played Herschel to rick and felt like that's what the what rick needed here in this moment in between death visions. Yeah. was excellent. I really enjoy Scott. Wilson, so yeah, they did this weird thing. Where Kershaw touched his hand, his wound this, when said wake up, and then when Rick was on his, they actually had the hand still on him in the real in real life, okay, and wasn't as Ambihan wasn't Andrew. Lincoln's bloody hand it was like them then playing again with breaking the boundaries of what's real and not real and I kind of came down on the side of I thought it was cool. Jeff Fisher. Say. Yeah, like I said he wakes up but then quickly pass out again and flashes back to the hospital from the beginning of the series. And, he opens the. Don't dead, open inside door, which now just say dead opened inside. A find. A field of dead bodies which include. Daryl and Beth doodlebug. Maggie Sasha. Many? Yeah, like basically everyone he knows I think is in that group and a Sasha gets up and tells rick to be okay with whatever happens because he did his part just like everyone did. And that's really all he needed to do. And then she says wake up. Yeah! Kevin I thought you WANNA. Talk about this. No I decided this was. I've talked about. The shoddy effects. Work but I thought this was. Not quite solid and real, but what it needed to do, I thought this like this. World of corpses was a very interesting visual and like and then it. It contrasted with what the. Sasha was saying about like you worry about like the good people dying dead people dying whether all evens out in the end. It doesn't even out it. It's it all balances to the good toward the Good Nebraska I. Fucking want to believe that. So I I thought it was Another is another pretty powerful moment for the show. You GotTa joke though I can tell. If felt to me like the world's. Most horrific like matrix loading screen. They're booting into a program ear. Groups I seven bodies instead of the guns, yeah! Like the world's ultimate dead baby joke like you know what's grocer and gross. What's gross? A giants World Zaid Field of corpses. What's Grosser and Grosser Rick? Grimes cleaning it up with a snow blower. It's like. Where's Waldo because I'm pretty sure you can produce composite at just about everybody in there some people are turned the you know. Their faces were turned away, so you couldn't quite tell by thoughts Abraham even in there I'm GonNa assume that that is not actually Beth because they don't show her face. Probably not yeah, and there's also like some people that we are still alive. Were also darryl was laying there dead? So it's not like this is everyone's dead. Everyone Rick fears the the lose I. Guess, and probably even I thought I saw a couple of the people. He's personally killed there, too. So it's not just even just the friends. We lost long ways as all the death that he seem and fears to see are those powerful visual metaphor. Yeah so then he he does wake up. He falls off his horse at the camp, and the horse runs off stranding him. the Walker is close in, but group of survivors including me shown shows up just in time to save him. Amazon tells Rick Not to die. Unfortunately, that was all a dream and I. I remember thinking. How did how did everyone get here? Because I where was everybody, did they? Did they all kind of communicate and posse up at some place and then the. Dogs Andrea, de. So fucking weird! I don't know if this possible end they reveal. It's a dream and I'm like okay great, but then it happens. Is Exactly The Times ten like Jesus? How the Fuck Musket here? Is this. Is this camp equal distance from every single other community? Well. I wonder if Jesus how Jesus leave things with Maggie. 'cause. He knew what she was going to do at Alexandria I wonder if he's like. A half hour after he left or whatever it was like you know. Maybe we ought to go over Alexander because all hell could be breaking loose. We might need to save Maggie from a mob. We might need to save a mob for Maggie we need to. I guess, but you're right. It's very sloppy Joe. Everyone. It also kind of suits greg. Terrorist Greg doesn't give a fuck so like having a kind of a messy script where guys fading in and out of consciousness, and he's essentially being 'cause I made since him being at the camp because I'm at you know the horse. If you're right or passes at the horses, kind of goes on autopilot, and I like I remember I I used to know the sheriff at a Northern Indiana town. Talk about like a pullover over Amish. They're just passed out drunk in in their buggies and the horses just horses just taking him home from the bar because it knows the way, right horse doesn't know about stop signs and stoplights does why got pulled over and arrested but like? Like you know rick passes out to horses going to be like Fuck I. Don't know either go to the hilltop camp. I guess and he took him to the camp, which was the wrong place, but that all made sense to, but like I said this weird story kind of suited Nicotera, directing style which is. avant-garde. non-linear. Disregard. It's a dream wakes up long enough to lead the walkers across the bridge that is built unfortunately too strong to crumble under their weights and the survivor show up.

"The Black Mambas have shut down five poaching camps and have reduced snaring by seventy six percent. There was even a ten month period during two thousand fifteen, when no rhinos were poached at all. Rhinos are one of the oldest groups of mammals that play an important role in their habitats. In African countries, the protection of black rhinos creates large blocks of land for conservation purposes that also benefits other large species including. Today the Black Mambas. anti-poaching unit has won a champions of Earth Award from the United Nations Environmental Program, this has been a short story from her story on the rocks podcast about awesome women doing awesome things. If you WANNA learn more, you can find our podcast on Google. Play Itunes, stitcher, and spotify, and never forget that well behaved. Women rarely make history. By moxie. Thanks Ladies Now. The Black Mambas were the first all female anti-poaching unit, but they aren't the only one. In Zimbabwe's fondue wildlife area, a one hundred fifteen square mile, former trophy hunting tracked are the Kushinka the breath ones. It's a program that not only saves animals, but in many cases it saves the women to. The cushing are one arm of the international anti-poaching Foundation. The IPF was founded by an Australian man. Damien Mander. Mander was an army special forces sniper who served twelve worse in Iraq. Twelve. All that time in combat, then it's like okay. Go back to civilian life. It's a hard thing to just switch off. But manner was able to find a way to channel his skill and do good in the world. He moved to symbolic way and formed anti-poaching squad, but the initial results were middling at best. So manager changed his strategy. He fired the men and began training female rangers. Specifically recruiting local women who had had a raw deal in life. After all who better to defend the threatened the helpless Ben someone who knows what that feels like. Thirty six women started our training modeled on our special forces training, and we pushed them hard much harder than any training. We do with the men Mandir explains. Only three dropped out. I couldn't believe it. Years earlier mandarin a similar course with one hundred eighty nine men. At the end of day one all but three of them had quit. So. That's eight percent of the women quitting versus ninety eight percent of the men. San. Manner tried to push the recruits to their limits. He tried to put them through hell, but as he got to know them, he found out. They'd already been. One, woman's husband left her with one child and another in Kerry and no way to support them. Another woman's husband would beat her so badly. She couldn't stand up afterward. Woman in her early twenties was raped by a neighbor at seventeen and became pregnant. Then the rapists mother took her child to raise, and hasn't letter had any contact with a? Sleeping in the mud is nothing compared to that. From the very first day of the women's training manager saw that he had something very special happening. He realized that the women were the missing link to a successful conservation program. For most of the Inga being arranger is the first job they've ever had outside of the home. To the surprise of no one, the community was not Super Gung Ho on the idea. The men in their villages harassed ridiculed and belittle them, but the Chinga don't care. They care about the animals. Like a leopard killed by a group of men who claimed that it attacked them, and they had to kill it in self defense. The Rangers could tell from the superficial nature of the men's wounds, and the fact that a leopard pelt and teeth are worth more than a month's wages that they were lying. There were other benefits that mander couldn't have anticipated. The ACA INGA SEEM IMPERVIOUS TO BRIBES AND CORRUPTION They. Spend their pay in their communities. A female salary earner in the Undo region generally spends ninety percent of their pay on their family as opposed to thirty five percent by males so all right as soon as the programs started, it was contributing more to the community's economy than the fees collected from trophy hunters. When the ACA Shingo make arrests, they deescalate the situation rather than letting things become violent. And then there is their devotion to the animals. As one ranger put it. Female Rangers are superior to Male Rangers because women have a motherly heart. In there is let's face it the stereotypical tendency of women to talk especially in a rural setting where there is not a lot going on. Somebody finding an affair. Yes, way to make money is some juicy gossip and the cushing have ears in all the villages to catch it. The success of the ACA Shingo illuminates their key principle to the community. That wildlife is mirth more to them alive than it is dead to the poachers. The ACA shingle live together in a hilltop camp with a panoramic view of the area and take their meals together a sustainable cruelty free, but calorie rich vegan diet crafted by a chef hired by mander. On one morning manner briefs them onto raids scheduled for that night. One on the compound of a man suspected of having illegal guns for hunting and the other on the home of a suspected poacher that's been trying to sell a leopard skin. They spend the day in drills, ensuring that each ranger knows her position. Then manner gets behind the wheel of the truck. For Rangers jump in the back with a local police officer who will oversee the raid and the team sets off. In, the single digit hours of morning, the Shingo approached the first target. Mander speeds into the compound and the Rangers leap out and take their positions. One knocks on the front door. The suspect eventually allows them inside where they find several pelts from a species of small antelope. The is handcuffed and loaded into the truck without incident. One target down one more to go. The KUSHINKA have been up for more than twenty four hours now, but we are not tired. One told the reporter writing with them. We don't tire until our job is done. And that's where we run out of ideas at least today. But to the homie Amazon's so named by European explorer naturally because he reminded them of the Amazon women of Greek legend as all warrior women seem to do. The core began with skilled hunters, and then the Halsey were added the third tier wives of the king. Some, women were forced to join either because they were slaves, or by their husband or father. But many women joined voluntarily. They carded the king of Benin for nearly three hundred years growing to number some six thousand before the last king was overthrown by France in eighteen, ninety four.

We also offer dance classes twenty nine dance classes throughout our state and our camp, and we also do a lot of community service. And that's one of the things that we we really focus on is the community service part of it. And that's where the camp comes in and the grief camp session a few years back. We decided that our service focus 'cause was going to be Krief services and we had a camp. And we knew we could give. This service to somebody. So we decided to let's run with this and see how it goes. We started in two thousand seventeen we had thirty eight campers year last year, we had sixty four hoping for seventy five this year and see how that goes. But yeah, right now, we're taking applications on our website for the grief support service session. So if you have anybody interested that likes to go would like to go and has a child that's in that position. They can go to our website, www Herman son's life dot org, and they can find the application on our website. It's fantastic that people here this right in there like lodged, there has to be some sort of some sort of you know, entrance exam or something or you have to live in a certain area or be a certain thing. What what does it all entail? Basically, it's a life insurance or annuity product you become a member by purchasing one which covers you for as long as you keep it up today. So if something happens to you or a family member, you're covered when you pass. Once you're a member you pay a little bit of dues usually about three dollars a year. Nothing major you have places in your community where you can go and meet people in the same organization. Do community service projects we have people doing stuff for their local four H or FFA all kinds of things. But no, there's no prequalification other than you know, the life insurance itself. That's really what it's all about. That's really what it's all about. Now, you guys have a big event coming up to right because you got to do this camp. You have to raise the funds. Absolutely in order for us to do the camp we have to raise funds every year to pay for the services that we provide. So this year, we're doing a casino night. And that's may the fourth which is coming up pretty quickly. Basically the children pay for nothing. They have a fifty dollar application fee. So they pay nothing to go to this camp. So we're just trying to cover those basically the casino nights may the fourth. It's going to be at the comfort hilltop camp for boys. Where we actually do the camps of people can see the facility it's pretty it is it's very beautiful. So we're gonna do casino night steak. Dinner starts at six gambling will start at seven we'll have silent auction items door, prizes and prices at the end fifty dollars a person gets in and get you going. So we look forward to having a bunch of people up thirty week at this next weekend. It's a very affordable ticket, by the way. Absolutely. It does. It does include the thousand dollars in tips hip, yes. To start you can't buy more. And basically, the, you know at the end of the night, you can use that chips your winnings to, you know, some nice prizes. Who's a gambler other? Both y'all probably me. So, Ian, whatever he's doing whatever table. He's at. So we're talking with with her son's life. They've got this this grief camp, that's amazing here in San Antonio. So so, Ian, you do this. And you meet these kids and families and everything there's there has to be some stories that stick with you. This is actually the first I took over the camp in October. So this will be my to get the stories. Are you emotionally ready for what you're about to go through? Well, I you I who knows the answer. I mean, that's why we have to children's bereavement Senate coming in. I mean, you I, you know, when I've been at camp up in camphor thirty years, you know, I've actually had to tell a child that of a of a loss because the parents wanted me to and, you know, not easy. And you know, this is going to be very eye opening for me. But you know, it's it's something that I think it's a great thing that we do something for the community. I should mention that you don't need to be a member of him and son's life to attend this camp. It is a fanny money and the community not community that has experienced the loss that six to seventeen. So, you know, it's something that I'm looking forward to doing it looking forward to, you know, provide in a service for these kids and given them. A chance as you said earlier to really share with others who going through the same same thing. I mean, it's you, you know, as you say, you know, these kids they need somebody. They need to know. They're not alone. They need to know. It's okay. To talk about it. And this is what we provide. Yeah. Excessively? I have you been out the Campo, and it's been going on. Yes. I have I've gone both the last two years. I went the first day the first year and saw kids walking in very shy intimidated and not knowing anybody in not knowing what to do or who to talk to you. And last year to see the last day of the in. That was so much different these kids of bonded, they've learned things from each other. They've they've become really close friends a lot of exchanged phone numbers and Email addresses in text messaging and social media. So that they can keep in touch. We do have one family who lost a sibling last year was the first year the six year old got to go. But it was the second year. For the sixteen year old to go. They lost their sister. She had an epileptic episode episode overseas, and they were at school, and they come home, and you know, sisters, gone older sisters, gone. They have grown so much in the last two years going to this camp and meeting other people the oldest daughter actually wrote a song for her sister. And we've used that in some. Different videos and different things to get people interested in what's going on out there. So it's it's been very uplifting. For me to see the difference in these kids from day one today four now a lot of times, you know, what happens right? Somebody somebody's hearing this right now and the radio who maybe didn't go through this. But they know exactly who should go how what's the process, so they can go to Hermansen's son's life dot org and go to our camp or member benefits camp website, and there's an application they fill out the application to get sent in to us. We send it over to the children's bereavement center. They'll be contacted by them they'll go through a process with them to make sure that they're ready for this camp. Not every child is ready because it's too new. It's too raw. Sometimes it's just too new. So they'll go through that once the processes is taking care of nave been accepted. They'll get in contact with the N go through the steps for all the camp information that we need. We'll set. Them up, and they'll show up the first day and often we go. That's it right there. That's it. And you mentioned some kids have come back. Yes. We have had a few children come back. We had a set of siblings two sets of siblings. The last two years. Like, I said, the two girls that had lost the the the sibling. And then two boys who actually lost their dad in a car wreck. And they've enjoyed it. Immensely maybe not this year because they've gone for two years. So we're gonna let other people take advantage. But yeah, sometimes the children's bereavement center sees the need for them to come back second year because they got a lot out of it the first time, so we will see returner. Sometimes. Yes. So he and for those who are honestly, either one of you to you know, you mentioned that some some kids some families aren't ready for it. You know, I was I'm a very private person when it comes to certain things like that. And I don't know that I could go into this kind of environment. But what do you what do you tell I think sometimes it's is equally as important to tell the people the community around those people kind of share maybe what they're going through. So that at least they can have some sort of common ground when they're trying to talk to you know, you can say the wrong things. Absolutely. What do you tell people in those situations who are who are around those kids the rest of the time? That's a good question. And that's really a question that should be gone too far even center because they're the experts on that day, the people that, you know, they come in and they trained counselors volunteer that time to be with the kids, and they and really it's it's a question of, you know, not being afraid to talk to them is. I think is is important as it's important to be open and honest with kids. I mean, that's a good policy and everything as. We think we need to hide things we need to protect them. Whereas, you know, sometimes I think the most important thing that we can do for kids is just be straight up honest with them talk to them. And and be there for them. You know, just listen, I think is a big pot of wool what this session does. Is it allows these kids to speak? It allows them to talk about their experiences. And so that's where the expertise of the children's even send really comes in and comes into play because they'll they'll be teaching us. Right. What to say, I know one of the things they taught the the counselors the first year was the actually made them relive a loss that they had like go back to like a loss that really affected you? And that's what these kids these kids are coming from even if you were an adult, you know, how did that person really affect you when they passed? So. That first day of training. It was a lot of tears coming out of counselors. There was a lot of back and forth. But it it kind of put them in the mindset that. Okay. This is this is where I need to be because this is where this kid's but I want to bring him up to. So you know, they give they give them that kind of training. So that they're ready for it. It's not like they're walking in blind. Yeah. No. It's amazing. Okay.

"hilltop camp" Discussed on KFI AM 640

"All right. Here's what the evacuation centers are saying all of down the state, stop sending stuff we have too much of it. The warehouses are overflowing with unneeded supplies. And what are we talking about? Basically what clothing? Used underwear? Which people tend to give pampers foodstuffs. I don't think any of that is necessary. Money is always is always good money is good. I think some people get a little leery of making sure that their money's gonna go to the right place. Right. So the other thing that you can do is give gift cards gas giftcards, WalMart gift cards, those kinds of things those can be used just as easily but shy away from the actual good itself. Got it. By the way. Make sure you give it through the Nigerian who calls you and says, I'm collecting would you please send me a gift card and just actually a heads up. I'm glad you brought that up handle because there was a report that I heard last night. And I don't remember what channel it was. But specifically there is a scam. That is you get a phone call from a number out of Virginia, the state of Virginia and somebody asking you to donate to the fires don't do it. It is a scam. But they're saying specifically if you get a call from number out of Virginia, I don't care if you get a call from anybody asking you for donation phone just say, no done finish. Nice talking to you. How about giving me a bit on the windows is that your next job, right? After this week is over. All right. Let's move on campus, Kramer, and the gin Ling hilltop camp in Malibu both were heavily damaged by the Wolsey fire. Did you ever go there Bill? No. But a lot of my friends went to camp Kilmer. You went to many summers in a row you camp. Just to let you know. It's. My kids went to another camp. Now, let me tell you when this happens at all the Jewish camps you sit around and instead of instead of singing the songs, they ask the kids to talk about derivatives. That was my daughter went to a camp, and the counselor would literally sit there and go fires going the guitar. It's going Barbara. All right. Thirty year long four hundred twenty six thousand dollars twenty percent down amortize over thirty years. Come on. How that was true? I wished I'd gone. Encamp has Kramer is it is a Jewish camp. But but open to so many other organisations Catholic groups I mean, it's just a neat camp. And unfortunately, it's virtually wiped out eighty seven hundred ninety seven buildings between the two camps were destroyed. Did you see though that the minora at the top of the hill is still standing stuff like that gives me chills? I love that. Because that's the only thing made out of his bestest. The very clever. I mean, these people are very practical. We'll take your Joe we'll take a joke. We'll take a break as I get emails coming in from all over the place. We'll be right back. Alright janiero. Everybody hates the Jews.
