Yom Mosh is the day that the property in Liberty, NY was acquired by Hashomer Hatzair. Let's celebrate the day and our 100th anniversary by starting our next century strong. Hazak V'Ematz
On June 21, 1945, the property in Liberty, NY became Camp Shomria. We are making this our special day of giving. Please consider joining a team that is working toward taking on some projects that need attention. This campaign will take place through the 100 year reunion weekend, July 14th - 16th.
Below we are listing some of our upcoming site projects and renovations - please choose what you feel most connected to and join the team fundraising for that project!

The Josh Project - $2,000 or guitars and equipment donations (Fully funded!)
This is our friend and kvutza-mate, Josh Goren. Josh played the guitar, led Shira at Mosh, sang in makhela and harmonized with friends every chance he got. He grew up on folk music and union songs, playing and singing with his dad from the time he could hold a guitar. Oh, he was also the sweetest, kindest, most generous, loving friend you can imagine.
Josh died in October 1993, when he was only 27 years old.
We think the greatest commemoration of Josh at Mosh would be to collect guitars and musical equipment (and/or donations to buy said materials) and create The Josh Project. A program where each summer, alumni and hadracha would teach guitar to chanichimot, madrichimot, and anyone else who wants to learn! The goal of this program would be to help support a new generation of guitarists and musicians who love playing, singing and leading shira at Mosh – and to commemorate Josh’s love of music and the moshava.
