Color War 2018: Breakout

What do we mean when we refer to the “I” when we make claims about ourselves? Not to sound cliche but the concept of personal identity has baffled philosophers for centuries. What is it about us that endures over time? Who are we as people?

Once we are able to figure out who we are and where we come from, really deep down, we can become happier, grateful, motivated and successful people.

This is the overall theme we are exploring this year for color war. It is easy to quantify ourselves physically, or connect ourselves to a greater cause, but in reality, we are a combination of these things. Our gratitude, confidence, heritage and motivation is what sits deep within us and drives us to be the best that we can in all that we can.

It is both the things that we recognize and the things that we take for granted that, when combined, make up the core of our identity.

We hope that you explore what makes you work, what makes you strive, what makes you succeed. But more importantly, we hope that in participating in this program you get a better sense of who you are, and why you are you.

This year's color war focuses on the theme of Personal Identity. Each team represents a different way of representing this:
Red: Motivation - מוטיבציה
Blue: Heritage - מסורת
Green: Gratitude - הכרת תודה
Yellow: Confidence - בטחון עצמי
