Country in the Country 20140817

August 17, 2014

It's the last Country in the Country of the summer. Finally! Awwwww....

First we have to let you know, if you haven't already heard, about the winners of the Sullivan Renaissance Awards, originally announced last Monday. The winner of the $10,000 Community Mitzvah Award went to Camp Bnos Ahavas Israel in Liberty for beautifying its facility. Second place award of $5000 went to Khal Divre Chaim Bungalow Colony in Kauneonga Lake; while third place of $3000 was awarded to American Theological Camp in Kiamesha. Camp Simcha in Glen Spey received a special $5000 “Award of Excellence” as a role model for all institutions in Sullivan County. This contest included ten camps and bungalow colonies in Sullivan County. The three judges from outside the county were: Rabbi Joel Schwab of Middletown, Mary Lewis of Cornwall and our own Country Yossi Toiv of Brooklyn.

As for the show, we kicked of as usual with some Country Yossi music: "Shteeble People."
And then the calls and even more music: "Save Maftir for Me."
And then more calls, followed by Dov Shurin with the latest news from Israel.
We kicked off the second hour with some Kivi & Tuki music: "A Very Special Man."
Up next: Rabbi Moshe Meir Weiss and his gevaldigeh divrei Torah
And just as quickly as it began, it ended!

Have a wonderful rest of the summer. Join us again in the city for The Country Yossi Show, and Country Yossi Family Magazine. Find out more about them right here as events warrant!
