Since its inception over 43 years ago, under the leadership of Rabbi Eli Teitelbaum, zt’l, Camp S’dei Chemed has put great emphasis on good middos and character development. They were fortunate to have had a wonderful group of campers this summer. Their campers come from diverse backgrounds and learn from one another with mutual respect and love. The winners this summer displayed extraordinary amounts of kindness and sensitivity to others. S’dei Chemed salutes them for their exemplary middos, unsurpassed derech eretz, and the great kiddush Hashem they made wherever they traveled. May they be role models for all others to follow.
