Hi thank you for coming on here! I just want to tell you a little bit about Yeka and the pictures will speak the rest :) I went to Yeka the summer of 12th grade since I heard so much about it I had to see it for myself. There's so much to tell but something that sticks out is the overwhelming joy of the children when they stepped off the bus, the incredible family unit that everyone felt was so powerful especially knowing that many did not have families or at least families who bring them joy. At Yeka the campers are infused with a love of Judaism and the Torah; they become part of the Rebbe's army of Tzivos Hashem where they learn that each one of us play a crucial role in making this world a better place. Shabbat is unreal at Yeka! It starts with Friday early in the morning we all bake delicious Challah (don't forget the flour fun;) and then each camper gets treated to a pre Shabbat makeover. Every girl gets to pick beautiful new clothes and jewelry to wear and then gets beautified by one of the Yeka counselors who do her make-up, hair and nails before Shabbat. Each camper is glowing as they light the Shabbat candles - its so amazing to see! Another incredible moment was Jewish name day. Every girl who still did not yet have a Jewish name woke up early in the morning to get made-up, wear fancy clothes + tiaras and head over to the Menorah Center Synagogue where there was a Jewish naming celebration! Jewish pride and excitement was felt so strongly in the room! I could continue on and on with personal experiences and stories but I will leave that up to the photos to do :) Thank you again! May your incredible kindness in donating to such a worthy cause be thrown right back at you tenfold <3
