Eidah Dalet 2015 / 5775

Thanks for the warm welcome  

Dear Vicky,

I would like to begin by thanking you and all the staff of Camp Moshava, for your warm welcome and hospitality during the Shabbat we spent at your camp.

What I saw and experienced – both from an activities standpoint, as well as from the staff and campers with whom I had a privilege to speak – was truly heartwarming and left me with a lasting impression that I will not forget.

Your role in teaching Judaism and its core values is both sacred and crucial, as our youth will now be instilled with a deeper knowledge and understanding of our rich faith and heritage.

It was also a source of pride to watch how the love to the State of Israel, was taught to the campers in the tradition of Torah Veavoda.

With your hard work, a labor of love, I must say, we can be sure that the link between Torat Israel, Am Israel and Eretz Israel will never break.

In the name of the state of Israel , it is my privilege to commend you for what you are doing to strengthen the eternal bond between the Jewish community of Canada and the State of Israel.

Kol hakavod ve yashar koach.

Sincerely yours,

Joël Lion

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

Lovely summer  

My child had the best summer of her life!!|I think all the activities daily, especially the lake and the special programming on certain days for example Israel day.

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
