Eidah Gimmel 2016 / 5776

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

First timer eager to return  

I just wanted to tell you what a great time my daughter had. I’m laughing now remembering our conversation months ago when we discussed sending her. What a little camper she turned out to be!!

She just told me she wants to go back to camp now not just next summer but right now. She’s already bored at home.

Thanks for taking such good care of her and making sure she had a wonderful first camp experience.

Shabbat shalom,

Rosh Eidah Gimmel

Hi everyone! I am so excited be Rosh Eidah Gimmel this year!! Let me tell you a little about myself—my name is Zev Wasserman, I’m 20 years old, I’m currently at the Schulich School of Business and I’m 6’4. That last fact is, of course, the most important. This coming summer will be my eighth summer at camp, and I’m pumped that I’m going to be spending it with all of you! Moshava’s always been important to me—I loved working as a counselor for 3 years, then as a sgan and then as rosh eidah. I’ve always had an amazing time at camp, and I know this year will be no exception. Gimmel’s really where it’s at—I can’t wait for a summer full of overnights, megamot, rocking night tochniot and fantastic trips! If anyone has any suggestions or comments or questions or just want to chill, please get in touch! My email is zzwass@hotmail.com. I know we’re going to have an amazing time this summer—start getting excited!!
