“The event, which was a huge Kiddush Hashem, has become an annual occasion anticipated by the camp and guests alike,” says Oorah.
This year’s luncheon featured a number of special highlights. On behalf of Oorah, Rabbi Avraham Krawiec, TheZone camp director, presented Gilboa Town Supervisor Anthony van Glad with a $7,500 donation to the township. Speaking before the camp body, Rabbi Krawiec emphasized to the girls the appreciation they owe to Mr. Van Glad and the town for being such gracious hosts of the camp every summer.
Special to this year’s luncheon was an additional presentation honoring the officials who helped Oorah and TheZone bring the case of their this winter to a successful conclusion. Each official was presented with a plaque of appreciation.
“As in previous years, the camp dining room exploded with energy as hundreds of campers put on an enthusiastic display of the camp song and dance,” says Oorah. “Throughout their visit, the officials were extremely impressed with the camp and its staff.”
