7 Weeks of Israel @ 70!

June 18–August 3, 2018

Be a secret messenger, passing decoded messages to the Jewish Resistance during the British occupation. Be a kibbutznik planting your first crops in the desert. Be the person coming off the ship in Haifa and settling the newly paved streets in Tel Aviv. Dance to contemporary Israeli music. Celebrate independence on the beach. Participate in a motorcycle rally across the desert. Tour the art galleries of Ein Hod. Play basketball for Maccabi Tel Aviv when they beat the Russians in the Euro League. 

Celebrate 70 years with seven weeks of special events!

Why MoEd?

The same amazing teachers that run MoEd all year are happy to run a summer camp where kids love to come, and parents have a hard time making them leave. 


Daily Program

During the week, our campers have three days of chugim (electives) with options, and two days with afternoon arts and crafts and watch a movie. We go daily to a private pool. The camp is conducted mostly in Hebrew, with lots of Israeli songs and dances. 

Our experienced staff who works all year round, teaching experiential Jewish and Hebrew, infused with fun-loving activities, leads the kids through the day full of arts, sports, outdoor activities, and tons of games. And yes, all that is done in Hebrew and in Jewish!
