Rosh Mosh 2016 / 5776

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.

Thanks so much!!  

Sorry for the very overdue “Kol Hakavod” on organizing an amazing summer 2011. From the reports and pictures I can see that our daughter is having a fabulous time!! You really spoiled us with that super bunk and counselors! Can’t thank you enough!!

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 Mosh

Hi Moshava Family!

My name is Daniel Gofine, and I’m so excited to be coming back to camp this summer as the Rosh Moshava! This will be my 11th summer in camp, and third serving on Tzevet Bachir (Upper Staff). Upon graduating from Or Chaim, I studied at Yeshivat Har Etzion in Alon Shvut and then enlisted in the Givati Brigade of the IDF. Following my service, I returned to North America to study at Yeshiva University in New York and am currently studying psychology with a minor in business. I have always been involved with Bnei Akiva, most recently serving on Bnei Akiva’s national board of the U.S. and Canada- the Hanhala Artzit.

Growing up in camp, I had always looked up to the Moshava tzevet as role models within Bnei Akiva and as proud religious Zionist Jews, and I continue to come to camp to give back to those years that I had spent as a camper. I hope that this year, we, as a Machane, will discover new things about ourselves and continue to develop our connection to Israel and the Jewish people. We are busy working on amazing and new programs for camp this year, and I cannot wait make this the FINEST summer yet!

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me at roshmosh5776@gmail.com.

Looking forward to see you all soon!

Kol Tuv!
Daniel Gofine
