Eidah Gimmel 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

Great place  

Just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful Shabbat– we had a great time.

We also wanted to say that the camp seems to be in a great place, the Rabbi is amazing and the atmosphere is great! All the changes made a big difference– Yishar Koach!

Good luck!

All the best,

Happy kids  

I just want to thank you. I have never seen my kids happier. They are having their best summer ever. My son loves Mach Hach. His counselors are awesome. I was so impressed when his Rosh Eidah and the Rosh Mosh came over to introduce themselves to us on Visiting Day. My daughter is also very happy to have all her friends in her bunk. She also likes her counselors especially her Rosh Eidah. My kids are both very excited about their learning. My daughter keeps mentioning how terrific a teacher her Chinuch instructor is. So thanks again, enjoy the rest of the summer.

So much fun  

Hi Vicky,

It was great seeing you briefly yesterday. I just wanted to let you know that whatever “formula” you are using for this summer, it is great. Jonah and Aaron are having a fantastic time. I spoke with a few boys in the bunk who were at camp last summer and they said that they are having so much fun this year. We already signed the kids up for next summer! Thanks for your hard work and dedication to camp. We are so lucky to have you.

Enjoy the rest of the summer

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
