Eidah Gimmel 2014 / 5774

A big mitzvah  

Noam was in a particular situation, suffering from a critical illness. Yet Camp Moshava did everything in their power to allow him to experience some camp this summer, even though it was impossible for him to attend the entire session. They patiently followed all the doctor’s guidelines and never made him feel like they were doing him a favour. They showed only happiness in the fact that he could spend even a few weeks, and the staff did everything in their power to allow him to participate in those activities he favoured in particular. They were also incredibly generous in making it possible for us to send Noam’s little sister Adina for the full camp session. They showed us so much support through a difficult time and made us feel like part of the family. This is what they do. They go out of their way to make every member feel included, no matter the circumstance. That’s beside the fact that the activities, staff and facilities are top notch.|Camp Moshava really stresses that every member is part of a large family and it is not just a cliché. They really prove it through their actions. In our experience, we have truly felt the individual attention to each of our children, and that the counsellors, staff, bunkmates, and other kids really care for them. A major strength is also the joy that transpires in how the camp as a whole lives Judaism in such a positive way. The ruach is so strong and in turn strengthens the kids’ feelings toward their faith and their love of Israel.

Please thank the staff  

Dear Vicky,

Thank you very much for a wonderful camp experience at Moshava Ennismore. Miryam had a great time!

I think it’s very important for kids in the greater NYC area to venture out to other places and meet people and peers. It is not only rewarding but also creates a bond with other communities.

Again, thank you.

If you could pass my thanks around to the appropriate staff I would appreciate it.

Most Sincerely,

Suzanne Fischer

Returning with pleasure  

I have been meaning to write since Eyal returned from camp. Your email yesterday about camp ending today prompted me into action.

To no one’s surprise Eyal had a wonderful summer. He returned filled with wonderful memories and I am certain he will be returning in the coming years. There is now an ongoing argument between him and his NJ based cousins over which Moshava is better.

I wanted to thank you for all your efforts early on in the decision process and all throughout the summer.

Enjoy the rest of your summer. I hope you get a chance to take a few days off!!!

Best regards,

Arye

PS the daily pictures on the website were a most wonderful daily distraction

Above and beyond  

The summer far surpassed my expectations for both my children who attended. Both want to go back next year and one wants to do a longer period next year (6 weeks) vs what he did this summer (4 wks). We are extremely happy with the staff and the communication from the camp. The effort everyone puts in really shows.|Everything – fun activities, good food, good jewish learning, megamot, safety, excellent staff, very well run, communication with parents

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
