Three York children – Madeleine and Phoebe Gillis and Esther Van den Bos – and York Cheder (religion school) teacher, Lauren Keiles, have just returned from Kadimah, LJY-Netzer’s Summer Camp for the children of members of Liberal Jewish community around the country.
York Liberal Jewish Community were delighted to be able to subsidise the two week camp, thanks to the generous support of the NLPS Trust and the estate of Leon Brittan, the former MP for Richmond in North Yorkshire.
“Kadimah 5777 was a memorable experience that Phoebe and I thoroughly enjoyed.
“Throughout the two weeks we endured many fun activities like whole camp capture the flag (which involved lots of powder paint and shaving foam,) chavurach (a big cluedo game), the wide game, swimming, art, drama, ma’mada’s, lots of kef sessions, the day trip and many more.
“LJY is also a great opportunity to make friends for life in your age group. There are people from all over the country and even different countries. The camp is split into five age categories
Plagim- year 5-6
Nechalim –year 7-8
Chalitzim- year 10
“We would definitely recommend it to others as it was so much fun we will definitely go again. Also if children are feeling home sick there are two telephone lines to call home. We really hope to see you at kadimah 5778.”
