Young Shluchim and Shluchos from around the world are counting down the days until the Tzeirei Hashluchim Winter Camp, a division of the Shluchim Office which takes place in Lake Worth, FL.
Specifically this year, after being home for many months, they can’t wait to spend ten amazing days with their friends and peers.
“Our daughter Shterna, is so excited for this year’s winter camp!” shared Mrs. Moussia Goldstein, Shlucha to Philadelphia, PA. “She’s gone in the past but especially this year, after being home for so long due to Covid, we see how much it’s needed and how excited she is!”
Young Shluchim who live outside of Lubavitch communities look forward all year to the camp, which is a treasured opportunity to spend time in a warm, chassidishe, fun environment. The chance to spend quality time in sunny Florida with fellow Young Shluchim just like them is something they don’t take for granted.
“Our son Mendel had a wonderful time in camp and is now infused with so much chassidishkeit,” wrote Rabbi Yitzchok and Malky Schmukler, Shluchim to League City, Texas after their son’s experience last year. ” He is now trying to say chitas everyday, a hachlata he made in camp, thank you!”
Registration has opened at youngshluchim.org for this year’s program following Covid guidelines of health professionals, promising an exciting and inspiring ten day experience for both the girls and boys divisions.
The girls division, coming up in several weeks by winter break, will begin on 6 Teves / December 21st until 15 Teves / December 30th and will be directed by Mrs. Mushka Minsky.
The boys division will take place during Yeshiva Break, starting 11 Shevat / January 24th until 20 Shevat / February 2nd.
“Our immense appreciation goes to the doctors and all the staff who are working tirelessly to make camp a reality this year,” said Berel Bendet who directs the camp. “It’s important every year, but this year it’s on a new level. For the Young Shluchim and Shluchos living in remote areas, it’s an ‘essential service’ in every sense of the word.”
Machane Berel and Machane Rivka Tzeirei Hashluchim Winter Camp is a project of The Shluchim Office. The Shluchim Office and the Young Shluchim division honor the memory of Rabbi Don Yoel Levy A”H of OK Kosher organization, a longtime sponsor of this worthy cause.
