  • Why do you think Mosh is special?

One of the big things that make us special is our institutional memory. Almost everyone on tzevet went here as a chanich. We remember what made it awesome for us and we try to emulate our madrachim, while also changing things that can make Mosh better. Also, our madrachim come into the summer with set educational goals and they have the spaces and opportunities to teach them. I can’t think of many other places where eleven-year-olds get the opportunity to learn about labor unions and gender politics.

Socially, I have seen kids who might not be considered the “cool” kids in the regular world shine here. I’ve seen Mosh have such a positive effect on kids as they come back throughout the years.

  • Why do you work on tzevet?

It is a lot of fun. I can’t think of a group of smarter and funnier people I could be hanging out with. Also, my madrachim were such an enormously positive influence on me as a chanich that I wanted the chance to assume that role for the current chanachim. I plan my schedule around being here for the summer. I can’t imagine doing anything else with the time.
