Rosh Mosh 2015 / 5775

Memorable experience  

It has been a very fulfilling and memorable experience for them in may ways. Camp is like a big family. My kids were very well taken care of when needing medical attention, which is very important when they are away from their parents. The nurse and camp director stepped in and made sure they felt nurtured and safe until well enough to return to their activities. They got a chance to disconnect from their everyday life, forge strong friendships, and be exposed to certain activities that they cannot do during the year at home and while at school (water sports, horseback riding, archery, for example). Very important as well, it deepened their pride in their Judaism and community through learning, song, dance and just plain cheerfulness!|The staff work very hard to make sure to offer a wide range of activities to please kids with many different interests. All campers feel included in a spirit of warmth and joy, and most importantly, the staff works to ensure that all campers plainly have fun. It is the kids’ happiest time of the year!!

Time of her life  

Abie sounds like he had the greatest time of his life! He is in the best mood and can’t stop talking about camp. It’s the sweetest thing… He wants to teach us all the songs and dances he learned… He already davened mincha before going to bed… And bought us his favourite shekem snack at IGA. We feel like sending him to camp was money very very well spent!

Oh… And I asked him if Vicky is a good camp director, and he said “Great!”

When I asked him if kids are scared of you, he looked at me like I was crazy and he said “no, she is so nice!!”

Thanks for taking such great care of our little man!

Lots of love

100% ruach  

Moshava’s major strength is Ruach 100% and inclusion, all children feel welcomed, cared for and special.

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.

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!!!!
