Camp Koby Chanukah Carnival

We had the privilege of hosting and celebrating with two busloads of Israeli elementary school children- victims of Arab terror. Talmidim spent countless hours preparing for the program, and prepared over a dozen game and prize booths, a professional magic show, arts & crafts, face painting, cake decorating, popcorn and cotton candy machines and giant inflatable attractions. After Chanukah candle lighting we all danced together, and the yeshiva band provided the musical entertainment. The joy of giving and sense of accomplishment that the talmidim felt is truly indescribable; seeing the beautiful outpouring of chessed and selflessness, as well as the tangible display of Achdut and Ahavat Yisrael made us all extremely proud of the talmidim.
