We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving our son Omri the opportunity to join Avoda.

It was a marvelous experience for him and his friends. You and all the staff did a super job. We enjoyed looking daily at the pictures you shared with us and the videos gave us a true sense of the great Ruach in camp Moshava Ennismore.

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.

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
