Eidah Aleph 2016 / 5776

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

Terrific time, friends, atmosphere  

Dear Vicky,

Thank you for a wonderful summer! My younger girls had a great time and came home with a new sense of independence and confidence that was born to them at camp.

My other daughter comes home tomorrow and hopefully she will be able to embrace what she’s learned and taken from camp and let it carry her throughout her school year in public high school. She’s made terrific friends, from what I can see (your lovely daughter included!) And I’m so grateful for all these girls bringing her into their social circle, she needed that so much.

Anyway, camp Moshava was worth every penny and we look forward to shipping the whole lot of girls back to you again next year!

Thanks again!! Hope we’ll all be in touch throughout the year!

Mazel tov! It’s been a great summer!

Values  

The campers adopt the core values of Moshava and Bnei Akiva, the environment is respectful and inspiring , the campers find role models of every age ( campers and staff), the spirit of Shabbat, Tisha b’av And tefilla empowers the religious practice, diversity of campers from Israel, USA and Canada and especially Yachad enriches the culture ....

Rosh Eidah Aleph

Hello to all of you Eidah Aleffers out there! My name is Avital Fortinsky and I’m so excited to be your Rosh Eidah this summer! I live in Ra’anana, Israel and I’m currently learning Torah in Midreshet Nishmat in Yerushalayim. I spent 2 amazing years in Sherut Leumi including a year in Hebrew Academy in Montreal! This is going to be my fourth summer at camp. In previous years I was a speciallist, madricha, sgan and now I can’t wait to be Rosh Eidah and have the BEST summer ever! I can’t wait for all of the night tochniot, the agam, megamot and overnights! But really, my favorite part in camp is cheering and dancing in the Chadar!

I can’t wait to meet you all in person but in the meantime I’d love to hear from you all by email at avital.fortinsky@gmail.com.
