As the summer comes to an end we look back at the tremendous impact we made and it all seems so surreal. When we first arrived we thought it would take some time for us to settle in to our new surroundings and its unique culture, before we can begin to do our jobs. But it was quite to the contrary, we immediately connected with our campers, language was not a barrier in the slightest. The language spoken in Camp Yeka is neither Russian nor English but a combination of both and a whole lot of love and dedication to top it off.
It was just yesterday that we were calling you asking to donate to our cause for a Jewish children summer camp on the other side of the Atlantic, some of you might have thought we were crazy at first, but we did it, and it happened, and it was a great success! Thanks to you!
Boruch Hashem this past summer aside from all the unique hands-on Jewish learning and activities, 2 day trips, nutritious meals, BBQ’s and all the other fun and amazing experiences that were had at Camp Yeka. Three Jewish boys joined the Bris of Avraham Avinu and an astounding 23 girls received Jewish names:)
We are considering writing a book called #Yeka Stories about all that happens at Yeka. But until we that project gets off the ground we ask that you please go over to your friend, cousin, neighbor, Rabbi’s son/daughter or whoever it was that asked you to donate to our camp and ask them to tell you more about what transpired in Camp Yeka. Ask them to tell you all the #Yeka stories about their campers, about their personal stories and about how Yeka impacted their lives.
May we merit the coming of Moshiach speedily in our times! Moshiach Now!
