Eidah Gimmel 2014 / 5774

Thank you  

Elianna’s experience at camp this summer went beyond any expectations I had at the start of the summer. It is amazing how in just 4 weeks of camp she has grown so much in her appreciation of Shabbat, knowledge of Jewish “Heros” as well as a feeling of independence.

When talking to her about life at camp, Elianna turned to me and said that she thinks Camp has made her feel prouder to be a Jew. When I asked her what her favorite activity was at camp, she responded to my surprise, Chinuch. She even wants to buy a siddur (just like the ones at camp, because it seems everything is the best at camp). She of course loved the other activities like Horseback Riding, Teva, Arts and Crafts, the Swing, Swimming and of course Shekem. For the last month any time we went anywhere or did anything it was always the pool was much better at camp, the pizza was the best there …

She loved her Counselors and I was impressed with them as well when I met them on visiting day. I could clearly see the kesher that they had with my daughter. She referred to Keshet as her substitute Mom at camp.

I found the communication from the camp to be excellent, from the email alerts regarding bad weather to the first Friday call from her Rosh Eidah reassuring me that she was having a blast at camp as well as scouring the many pictures for a glimpse of my daughters smile and what the campers were up to, the videos were great as well.

Thank you for providing Elianna with such a great summer full of wonderful memories. She keeps telling her sister how great camp is and now her sister wants to go to camp too. She is looking forward to another great summer next year, b”h.

Wishing you a Shana Tova

The camp is run very well, and for us reinforces the modern orthodox zionistic upbringing given at home.

Shalom Eidah Gimmel! Hey Moshava!!

My name is Daniel Gofine, and I am so excited to be returning this summer as Rosh Eidah Gimmel! First, a little bit about myself: Upon graduating high school, I studied at Yeshivat Har Etzion and served in the Givati Brigade of the Israeli army. I’m currently majoring in psychology and minoring in business at Yeshiva University. Having grown up in Moshava and acting as a madrich for three summers, I know how amazing and unique camp is. Having been Rosh Eidah Gimmel last year, I know how much fun Eidah Gimmel is—the trips, the Blue Jays game, the overnights, the night tochniot, Megamot and, so much more. I can’t even tell you how much I’m looking forward to camp and to meeting all of you!

In fact, I’m so excited about meeting all of you that I don’t want to wait for camp. Please feel free to get in touch with me at d.gofine@gmail.com with your questions, comments, thoughts and suggestions. Together, I know we can make Eidah Gimmel amazing! Already looking forward to an awesome summer, and cant wait to see you at the busses!

Daniel
