No words for how incredible this camp is and how much every camper gains from a month here. Chaval.

ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC!

I have no words to describe how screwed up the gov’t of Canada is!

Goldie & Itchy, my heart goes out to the two of you.

I hope that God miraculously grants Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a dose of much-needed SEICHEL and he stops politicizing everything.

Keep up the unbelievable holy work you do year-round both via the Friendship Circle and in your other tremendous activities.

Maybe schools should continue into the summer and then camps could be in Cheshvan when everything is back to normal.
