“ME!” shouted all the campers enthusiasticallyin response to director Naftoli Schmukler ask-ing “Who is going to do Torah, Avodah andGemilus Chasadim?” It was during the grandunveiling of the new Krum program as Naftoli was showcasing the new pro-gram and the Nosh that was going to be in the Krum store, that the campersgot wildly excited about this revolu-tionary idea.“We were discussing the MBP pro-gram, when I realized that the storeidea should not be
