I'm Lili and this is my 13th summer at Camp Shomria (not including covid)! I am a Sophomore Dance major at UMass Amherst. My favorite mosh memory is when my kvutza's ceremony got rained out so we went to the bathroom and took our oaths in the bathroom. I'm so excited to get to be together again this summer!! Community and building community is the thing I have always loved the most about Mosh so I am excited to be back in the mosh vibe cultivating that type of community again!
