What's the 
CHADAR,
anyway?

The Chadar Ochel is where we eat all our meals. In the Chadar, our campers sit wherever they want, allowing them to get to know many campers outside of their tents. Meals are buffet style and there is always a variety of options to satisfy any hungry belly!

HANI BEN SHABAT

When our campers cheer 'Hani is money!' repeatedly in the Chadar, it's clear how special Hani is to our chevrah. Hani feeds us ridiculously good food and cares about every single staff and camper that walks into the Chadar.

The Chadar is not just a place for eating. It is a place for cheering, singing, dancing, and joy. After every lunch, campers and staff stand up on the benches and cheer at the top of their lungs. Fan favourite songs include "Hey Bob Diddly Bob," "Welcome to Solelim," and of course, the official Solelim cheer!
