#iheartTY Staff - A Message from TY's Director

ihearttyIt’s hard to believe that in just four months we will be opening our 2014 season at Tel Yehudah.  But even though camp is completely encased in feet of ice, we are deep in preparations for an amazing summer.  We have been hard at work hiring the very best staff from across the United States, Israel, Canada and the United Kingdom. One of the reasons I always say that I have the very best job in the world is because I get to work with so many amazing young people each summer. They are dedicated, idealistic, responsible and deeply committed to our collective Jewish future.  Our staff is sure to create a fun and engaging time, ensure the physical and emotional health of our campers, and serve as amazing Jewish role models to our teens as they travel on their own journeys exploring leadership, Jewish identity, engagement with Israel and social responsibility.  

Over the course of the next few months we will be starting to introduce our staff to you through email and social media.   While we are sure to have camp defrosted and ready for our campers to arrive in June, it is truly the staff that creates the experiences that deeply impact our campers.  I know this personally because I was camper at Tel Yehudah many years ago, and I remain in touch with and inspired by many of the staff who influenced me as a slightly rebellious teen.   They helped me develop a deep sense of social justice, a life-long commitment to Jewish learning and teaching, and a meaningful relationship with Israel and the Jewish people.  As we enter our 66th summer, I am confident that this year’s staff will change the lives of our campers in profound ways as they did mine.
