Camp Gan Israel - the Summer of a Lifetime!
Parents write: Dear Rabbi and Chanie, I don't get a chance to see you too often, since Eli has been doing carpool, but I just wanted to touch base and let you know what an AMAZING time all three of my kids are having! Bentzi gets up every morning and immediately gets his backpack and bathing suit on! Ayelet comes home everyday with more stories about how much fun she is having. Even Akiva who is hard to get out of his shell is LOVING camp! It really made a huge difference in their acclimation to Rochester and the kids in the community. Thanks again for all of your hard work. Kara & Eli Wurtzel
