PHOTOS: Eitz Chaim Camp Boys Division in Russia back in action after 10 years

For the first time in more than 10 years, Camp Eitz Chaim boys division is back in action.

Led by Dovid Lagunov, Shmuel Dimarsky, and Shlomo Deutsch, more than 80 boys, (ages 6- 14) who reside in the former USSR with the assistance of American And Russian counselors from Peekskill, Philly, Eretz Yisroel, enjoyed their first Shabbos in Tarusa, Russia – which is located approximately 3 hours by car from Moscow.

The boys division of Camp Eitz Chaim is affiliated with the Eitz Chaim movement started by Rav Elya Svei, Rav Reuven Dessler, Harry Mayer, and many other dedicated individuals. The girls division has more than 200 girls, and is run by Mrs. Chana Rappaport (Toronto) and staff.

The group thanks: Reuven Dessler, Harry Mayer, Yoni Klein, Binyamin Schonblum, Betzalel Mandel, Michael Inzelbuch, Azriel Inzelbuch, Nesanel Davis and the many individuals who helped make this effort come to a reality. A special thanks as well to Shaindee Dimarsky (nee-Inzelbuch) and Meira Deutsch (nee-Goldbaum), the “brave wives” of Shmuel and Shlomo who joined  their husbands.
