Asepha Klalit

Asepha Klalit is a time during Shabbat and machaneh when everyone gathers on the basketball court and listens to constructive criticism, positive or negative feedback and overall comments about Mosh. Comments are mostly from kids and range from, “The mitbach (kitchen staff) is really rocking it,” to, “We really need air fresheners in the bathrooms.” All of the comments are recorded and worked on.

Kids walk, skip, crab walk, twirl or do something else creative up to the chair in the center of the basketball court, tap the chair and then walk around it while speaking so everyone can hear. This is a place where kids can voice their opinions, explain how they think Mosh can be improved or what camp needs and give Mosh and tzevet (counseling staff) feedback and things to think about. It’s a great way to allow kids to really have a voice and listen to each other.
