CAMP Ephraim in Jerusalem
Sukkot 04 - 12 October 2017
Camp Ephraim is not a charity organization.
We are simply a few families that want to keep Pesach and Sukkot
together in Jerusalem and
keep it simple.
Everyone is welcome that accepts that in this Camp we want our lives to be transformed according to the Living Torah.
Do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk.“ Isa 58:9
Those who sleep in the camp (Hillel Str. 30)
save the accommodation costs.
The camp requires the following:
1 tent (that doesn't require tent pegs!)
1 airbed (mattresses are not recommended due to possible rain)
1 sleeping bag
1 deep plate + cup + cutlery
(1 Instrument to bring an offering of praise)
Wherever you stay - you are welcome to visit Camp Ephraim.
During the Passover week and the Sukkot week there will be an open meeting
at Independence Park on Shabbat from noon onwards.
If it is in your heart to join us,
please be considerate by providing for yourself and your family
as well as helping with community needs.
1) Love Yah with all your heart, soul, and strength.
2) Love your neighbor as yourself.
3) Adhere to the other instructions of the Torah.

5) Only married couples & family units may share a tent.
6) No illegal substances.

15) No tents that require tent-pegs :-)
Remember to keep the camp clean - spritually and physically ...
First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Mt 7:5, Lk 6:42
Once prepared, if your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the camp; and if they refuse to listen even to the camp, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.
(Mt 18:15- 17)
“Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Yeshua HaMashiach and by the Ruach of our Elohim. 1 Cor. 6:9- 11
