A tremendous kiddush hashem took place at Camp Rayim Mesiva (Aliya) on Thursday when bochurim lined up to applaud and thank firefighters who had worked to douse a blaze that destroyed two of their camp’s bunk houses.
The fire was sparked Thursday morning in one of the bunkhouses and growing out of control for a time, necessitating a major emergency response from fire and Hatzolah personnel.
