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.

Thank you  

Hi Vicky,

Thank you so much for giving our kids an incredible summer. We always knew they would have a blast, but we were concerned about their yiddishkeit. Would it be nurtured and would their love of everything Jewish shine through? It was not only nurtured, but encouraged by your incredible tzevet. On visitor’s day we were told by Hannah’s counsellor ShayKay that Hannah encouraged her bunk to get to chinch, using the Rebbe’s teaching that summer is not the time to let one’s learning cool off. Gabriel’s counsellor Avi Leiberman told us that he and the rest of B2 staff kept the bunk lights on at night just so that Gabriel could finish his davening. And then of course, there was the siyum that was made in honour of Gabriel completing Shmuel Bet. Wow! When my husband and I saw the photos of the siyum and received Rabbi Effie’s email about it, our hearts were so full of naches. How wonderful that you and the tzevet created and encouraged an environment where my kids could be their authentic selves.

My husband and I see they’ve gained independence and loads of self confidence. We have also learned many of eidah aleph’s cheers over the past few weeks – and loved shouting them while we went canoeing and camping in Algonquin Park last week.

Hannah and Gabriel can’t wait to return to Moshava in 2013 and IYH they’ll be back for many years to come. Yasher Koach to you and the entire Moshava tzevet!

Wishing you continued hatzlacha,

Heather and Michael Aaron

Rosh Mosh

My name is Yadin Koschitzky and I am incredibly excited to be Rosh Mosh for summer 5775 at Camp Moshava! I am from Toronto, and after graduating from Yeshivat Or Chaim I studied in Israel for a year and a half in the hesder yeshiva Birkat Moshe which is located in Maaleh Adumim. In March 2012 I enlisted into the Paratroopers brigade of the Israel Defense Forces for 14 months. Following my service , I enrolled in Columbia University , where I am currently a student.

Moshava has always been my second home, as I was a camper there for 6 years and a tzevet member for 3 years as Plugah and 1 year as Rosh Avodah . I have always been actively involved in Bnei Akiva, and I am currently the Sgan Mazkir Artzi for Bnei Akiva of the U.S and Canada.. Along with the incredible team of Roshei Eidah, I hope to provide the chanichim and chanichot with the most amazing summer experience possible, one in which they will grow individually as Jews and realize their own potential. I cannot wait for the summer to begin, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone at MOSH 5775!!!!
