Eidah Bet One 2016 / 5776

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

Consul General of Israel to Quebec and the Atlantic provinces;

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.

Smiles everywhere  

Hi Vicky,

The boys arrived home with half a smile. They left half of it in camp! They are happy to be home but had such an incredible summer. In fact they are so sure that they are coming back next year that one of them came home with an entirely empty duffle bag!

Please make sure you thank the appropriate staff for making their first camp experience such a success. I was watching the camp pics with a very critical eye. Your programming looked great. The activities seemed engaging and the kids were all happy.

Enjoy the last two weeks of camp. I know the boys wish they were still there

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,

Rosh Eidah Bet 1

Shalom Eidah Bet 1!!! I’m Daniel Safran (a.k.a. TinTin, Safronius, That Chinuch Guy), and I can’t wait to meet you all this summer as your Rosh Eidah! As we count down the days until I greet you in camp, I’ll tell you a bit about me: Bnei Akiva and Camp Moshava have helped make me who I am today, as a chanich (camper) to madrich (counselor), to sgan rosh eidah and then 2 years on the Chinuch crew at Moshava!

When I’m not studying Torah, hanging out with friends, learning Graphic Communications at Ryerson University, searching my house for mint chocolate chip ice cream or practicing my frisbee throw, I am probably adding things to my list of Amazing Things to Do This Summer at Camp (it’s a reeeeaaallly long list, and includes trips, overnights, and big surprises)!!! That’s my job as Rosh Eidah: to do what my best to make this summer the best, most amazing, super summer yet for all of us– from mifkad until layla tov (following a great night tochnit)! So what are you waiting for? Get EXCITED for what I BET will be the most amazing summer ever at Moshava Ennismore!!!

Oh, and I almost forgot– I really want to know what you’re excited for this summer! Email me at safran.daniel@gmail.com with your name, and anything you want to tell me: a cool video, any questions, ideas or concerns you have– let’s start talking!

See you soon!
Daniel
