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.

Happy kids  

I just want to thank you. I have never seen my kids happier. They are having their best summer ever. My son loves Mach Hach. His counselors are awesome. I was so impressed when his Rosh Eidah and the Rosh Mosh came over to introduce themselves to us on Visiting Day. My daughter is also very happy to have all her friends in her bunk. She also likes her counselors especially her Rosh Eidah. My kids are both very excited about their learning. My daughter keeps mentioning how terrific a teacher her Chinuch instructor is. So thanks again, enjoy the rest of the summer.

Excellent  

He had a great time! Outstanding effort in making our son feel good and welcome and any issues he may have had as a new camper were attended to and informed. A love of Eretz Yisrael and Am Yisrael and just a warm and welcoming environment where he felt like he had been there for many years prior.

Family  

It’s staff, it’s obvious that they behave as a family. (Almost always a good thing). Moshava’s dedication to instilling a love of Israel is unprecedented.

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!
