Originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Elie found his way to Camp Biluim through a friend while studying at Western University. Hired in 2017, Elie immediately found a new home and extended family at Camp Kinneret Biluim. This past summer, Elie served as Head Counsellor and was fortunate to learn on the fly alongside an experienced head staff team. Elie is honoured to be Biluim’s Program Director for 2019 and could not do so without such a strong head staff team that has been assembled. Formerly a swimmer on the Western swim team, Elie is finishing an honours degree in accounting.

Hey Camp Biluim!

I’m Jacob (aka Rosie), and I couldn’t be more excited to be your Assistant Program Director and Head of Programming for Biluim 2019! This coming summer will be my 6th as a member of the CKB staff team, and I am heading into my 15th year as a part of the CYJ movement. Given those numbers, I think it’s safe to say that I love being a part of the Biluim and CYJ experience. It is hard for me to imagine spending a summer anywhere else. During the year, I split my time between pursuing my Master’s of Music Technology and Digital Media at the University of Toronto as well as working at a music studio. However, most of my time is spent daydreaming about camp. I’m already counting down the days until I can share the BSE with the Biluim Chevra of 2019! See you there!

My name is Benji Dzaldov and I am so excited to be Head of Leadership this summer! I have been part of the CYJ movement since 2009, and this summer will be my second year as a staff member at Camp Biluim Canada. While I count down the days until I can be chilling at the chof or playing basketball at the sports complex, I spend my time as a Civil Engineering student at Western University. I cannot wait until July 2nd so that the BSE can finally begin!

Hey Camp Biluim! My name is Allie and I am so excited to be one of your Head Counsellors this summer. This will be my 14th summer in the CYJ movement and my third summer on the Camp Biluim staff team. I graduated in 2018 from the University of Guelph with a degree in Arts and Science. Last semester I was able to spend my time in Jerusalem studying at Hebrew University and exploring everything Israel has to offer! During the year you can find me working at Hillel Ontario and Women’s College Hospital working towards my second degree in nursing. I can’t wait to get back to camp soon for tube time, shirah and rikud, and, my favourite, hadracha!!
