Eidah Aleph 2017 / 5777

Visiting day experience  

Hi Vicky,

We had a great time visiting Eitan today at camp Moshava.

He looks great and is having a fabulous time in camp and making new friends. He was so proud to show us his bunk and the camp facilities, and introduce us to his counselors and friends.

We are happy to extend his stay to the full 6 weeks.

We are confident that the Eitan we all know and love will come home with strong Jewish values and with lots of camp Moshava spirit!

A “hakarat hatov” to you, your staff, and I hope they know what this camp experience has so far meant to Eitan.

Please convey our gratitude, appreciation, and thanks to eitan’s counselors, division head, specialists, and Rosh mosh.

You are doing an amazing job!

Have a great rest of your summer.

Thank you!

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

Incredible summer experience  

My child learned to water ski on 1 ski (dropped and went around the whole lake).. cant wait to learn how to deep water start next summer… i hope the rosh agam jacob is coming back.. he was great too!!|the leadership (VIcky is a fantastic camp director and her camp experience is an asset to every parent staff and camper) and professionals that run each department…(such as nurse TK in the marp, or gilda at the pool, or shari as camp mom) they work tirelessly all for the effort of the camp.
