Based on the animated Disney Pixar film Inside Out, and made possible by Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah, this is a resource we made at the Foundation for Jewish Camp to help people express their emotional lives. The project package contains four key materials that you can easily be adapted:

Hineni– Here I Am

In Jewish tradition, when someone asks “Ayeka? Where are you?” the response is “Hineni – I am here,” or “Here I am.”  We have created resources around this concept of Hineini that offer a framework for exploring how we show up and relate to one another, at camp and beyond. These tools are intended to be interactive—designed to help campers and staff dig into relationships and explore how they are created and sustained.

    I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have presented in your post.
    They’re really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts
    are very quick for beginners. May you please lengthen them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
