Rosh Moshava 2017 / 5777

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.

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

The camp is run very well, and for us reinforces the modern orthodox zionistic upbringing given at home.

Rosh Mosh

Hello Machaneh Moshava!

I’m so excited to be returning as the Rosh Moshava this summer! After spending six of the most formative years of my life as a chanich at Moshava, I wanted to continue giving back to the camp as a member of the tzevet so I became a Madrich. I just couldn’t get enough so I moved on to be a Rosh Eidah (section head). Then my ultimate dream came true and I became a Rosh Moshava. I will now be returning for my second year in the role and I just can’t wait. I feel a very strong connection to my home away from home (besides Israel!), and I do everything that I can to strengthen the Moshava experience for our entire camp community.

One of the most amazing things about the summer experience is the opportunity to be with so many special people in our tight-knit camp. Every member that walks through our gates on the first day of Machaneh teaches, influences, and in turn is guided by the peers around him or her. That is what makes camp such a special place and what makes me so proud to be a part of Machaneh.

A bit about me before I sign off: after graduating from Yeshivat Or Chaim in Toronto, I had spent a numbers of years studying in Israel and serving in Tzahal. After my experience in Israel, I returned to North America to study at Yeshiva University, pursuing a degree in Psychology with a minor in Business. My favourite ice cream flavour is Mint Chocolate Chip, and my first name, though not used in camp, is Daniel.

I look forward to greeting everyone off the busses, but I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have about the upcoming summer. Feel free to reach me at roshmosh@campmoshava.org.

Though I had said this in last year’s bio, I’m truly confident that this summer will be Moshava’s finest, yet!
