Testimonials and Media

Parent and Participant testimonials about their experience with Biluim Israel:

“..Your daily updates and the pictures made the difference. You were obviously attuned to the anxiety that parents were experiencing. To hear what the kids were doing and knowing that you were in constant communication with the IDF was comforting. We are so happy that we were able to overcome (or live with) our anxiety, and let Kass complete the trip. He had a wonderful time, a broadening experience and a wonderful education.” Rachel Kassner and Joel Palter (Parents of Kass Palter), Prince Edward Island

“Biluim Israel is the trip of a lifetime! I got to experience everything Israel had to offer whether it be hiking Masada, rafting in the Jordan river or eating falafel. The memories made will be embedded in my mind and the friendships will last a lifetime. I only wish it could have lasted all summer!” Shira Rosoph, Biluim Israel Participant (Past Camp Kadimah Camper), North Bay

“…You and your staff are to be congratulated on a magnificent job, given what I can only imagine was an extremely stressful situation. You managed to provide the kids with a meaningful, sentimental and fun filled summer to commemorate their last occasion as campers. This was achieved while negotiating the group through a tenuous situation, ensuring their safety and best welfare. I am deeply grateful to you and your staff, as Rachel had a fantastic and memorable experience. Never at any time did she indicate that she felt frightened or ill at ease. Once again, my family is so very appreciative of all your hard work and we wanted to ensure that it was recognized.” Lynn-Beth and Sheldon Levy (Mother of Rachel Levy), Toronto

“Biluim is the place where it’s possible to branch out and become friends with almost your entire unit, while remaining close with people you’ve known since you were 8 years old. To sum up our YJ experience, the conclusion of being a camper results in a 4 week trip in our home, Israel. This was my first time visiting Israel, and I could not imagine going without 90 of my closest friends from all over Canada. Although my camper experience has come to an end, memories from the past 10 summers will last a lifetime, and I hope to create new memories as a staff.” Rachel Ublansky, Biluim Israel Participant (Past Camp Solelim Camper), Toronto

“I wanted to personally congratulate and Thank You for the outstanding work you and the staff did in Israel during the campaign in Gaza. As an Israeli who lived through 3 wars and participated in the first Lebanon war, I had full confidence that my son Noahm and the entire group will be safe. Hearing from Noahm his experiences and living the “Israeli reality” I know that, this unique experience will forever remain with him. Moreover the experience has made Noahm a stronger person! Please extend my deepest gratitude to the Driver, medic, the staff and the entire Biluim staff in Canada.” Drory Rozen (father of Noahm Rozen), Vancouver
