Camp F.R.E.E. Storms Washington

Just minutes after the Camp David peace talks broke down on Tuesday, sixty campers and counselors from camp f.r.e.e. arrived. they demonstrated less than twenty feet away from a press conference outside the Hampton Inn in Frederick, MD, where Clinton and Barak addressed the media before departing from Camp David.

Barak attempted to approach the children as they chanted “Sh’ma Yisroel...” but was intercepted by security officers and escorted back to the podium as cameras panned the action. Yoel, the Chassidishe Monsey Tours bus driver, said it was a “Kiddush Hashem Befarhesia” like he had never seen before. The event was covered by Arutz 7 radio as well as New York media.

the camp was accompanied by Yaakov Hendrik, recently written up in Beis Moshiach on his arrest by Palestinian police. He inspired the children to appreciate the danger of dividing Eretz Yisroel and giving land to the Palestinians. The campers wholeheartedly agreed to make a detour on their trip to Washington to show support for the Holy Land and an undivided Yerushalayim.

Camp F.R.E.E. is a branch of Friends of Refugees of Eastern Europe, an organization founded by the Rebbe MH”M 27 years ago, has 380 campers and is located at the Lubavitcher Yeshiva on Ocean Parkway.

The camp caters to children of little or no Jewish background. The goal is to instill pride in our Jewish heritage and in the Land of Israel. The camp program is imbued with Jewish themes and allows the children to learn in a fun and experiential way. The trip was organized by head counselors Yechiel Goldstein and Mendy Lezzel, and the counselors.

The signs were handmade by the children themselves. The trip was sponsored by Dr. Joseph  Frager and Rabbi S.B. Avtzon.
