Yachad 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

Amazing Experience  

Thank you to all the staff at Camp Moshava and a huge Todah Rabbah to Vicky for making this summer such a wonderful summer for our children. We hope that our children can continue to attend Moshava in upcoming years.|Incorporating an overnight camp experience in a modern Jewish Orthodox Dati Tzioni setting along with a very safe and fun environment.

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

Learn through playing  

Moshava’s strengths is making the kids feel that Camp is their summer home. Having the kids learn while they don't realize it.

Rosh Yachad

Shalom Moshava,

My name is Rafi Gasner and I’m excited to be Rosh Yachad Vocational Program(Voc) this summer!

I am currently fulfilling the Bnei Akiva dream of living in Israel. I made Aliyah in January after finishing my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Ryerson University in Toronto. I spent the past few summers as Rosh Yachad at Moshava Ba’ir Toronto which beautifully combined my passions for Bnei Akiva and Yachad. I have been involved with Bnei Akiva as a chanicha, madricha, Rosh Beit Midrash AND summer Tzevet Bachir. I volunteered for Yachad throughout highschool and then became a Toronto Program Coordinator.  I can’t wait to be part of the Moshava Ennismore family and meet all of you!

Feel free to contact me with any questions at GasnerR@ou.org !
