Who We Are

In addition to internal projects, BMQ provides grants and funding to organizations and individuals who can demonstrate eligibility for support, within BMQ’s scope of activity.

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.
