Camp Yagilu

Camp Yagilu is a wilderness survival camp for Jewish boys. Our mission is to encourage people to be happy and self-aware. We do this by challenging them in many areas – whether by experiencing the beauty of the wilderness or in zany group games. After the challenge, and resulting success, we “debrief,” and analyze their experiences. This leads to increased understanding and self-awareness. Greater self awareness allows the kids to choose effective behaviors. To get along with others and to be a productive and happy human being, you need to think, and to be aware of what you are doing. Yagilu helps people smooth out their relationships so they can respect each other, respect themselves, and accomplish more together.

BMQ’s Mission

The Mishna in Pirkei Avot states:
“There are three things on which the world stands. On Torah, on Avoda (service), and on Gemilut Chassadim”.
Beis Midrash of Queens’ mission is to strengthen these three pillars of Jewish experience, through increasing accessibility to Torah study, encouraging prayer which is referred to as ‘service of the heart’, and to help others through Gemilut Chassadim (acts of lovingkindness).
BMQ has increased access to Torah knowledge through the publication and distribution of over 35,000 volumes of Reshimos Shiurim, creation of Naaleh.com, a breakthrough in online Jewish education, scholarships to needy children allowing them to be able to afford Yeshiva tuition, and support for needy Torah scholars.
Avoda, prayer, is encouraged by BMQ through its support for the Tehillim Kollel at the Western Wall and online Tehillim program at Naaleh.com.
BMQ is dedicated to helping those in need of assistance, whether through charitable donations, assistance with medical crises.
