Rosh Eidah Aleph

Shalom y’all!

My name is Jessica Gelbard and I’m stoked to be coming to camp as Rosh Eidah Aleph this summer!

Toronto born, and Kitchener-Waterloo raised, but as of last year, I officially call Israel home! I studied Political Science at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, and am currently completing a post-grad in Occupational Health and Safety online through the University of Toronto. I may be a professional student during the day, but to make sure I never get bored, I’m also currently a madricha at The Israel XP at Bar Ilan University.

Camp is a big part of my life. I was a chanichah at Camp Northland B’nai Brith for 10 years, and spent 4 years as staff at Camp Katonim as a madricha and a Rosh Eidah (section head), but I’m super excited for my first summer at Moshava Ennismore! I can’t wait to meet you all so we can kick off the best summer yet! I’m counting down the days, but they just don’t seem to be moving fast enough.

If you have any questions, crazy fun (or just crazy) ideas, or just want to shmooze, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me: jessicaleahgelbard@gmail.com

Hey guys! My name is Leba Gershon and I am super excited to be Rosh Eidah Bet 1 this summer!
A little bit about me 🙂 My family made Aliyah when I was 6 months old, and I grew up living in Bet Shemesh!
I am a second year art and education student in Jerusalem (Michlelet Emunah).

In 2017 I spent the year in Toronto as a bat sherut in Netivot HaTorah, and in the summer continued my sherut leumi at Moshava! Having an amazing experience as a madricha, I came back last year as Rosh Eidah Aleph.
I’ve always loved camp, and spending my summer as a chanicha at Camp Dror and Machane Amichai (Bnei Akiva camp in Israel)

I cannot wait to see my campers from last summer (yes, I am following some of you to Bet1), meet some amazing new kids and to get the ruach going and for the fun to begin!

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!
