  1. To me it seems, that his was in Camp Ohr Shraga. The buildings, pillers by the driveway, R’ Yakov acting as the host, would all indicatethis. Can someone verify this?

  2. This is camp ohr shraga not agudah. The grounds look exactly the same today (with some additions). In addition rav Yaakov was rosh yeshiva of ohr shraga and stayed there over the summer so it fits that that Rav Moshe would visit him there. As a side note MTJ’s old camp was about a 10 minute drive from there so Rav Moshe probably didn’t come up from the city.

  3. The video was taken by my brother-in-law’s father, R’ Raphael Loeb, A”H in Camp Ohr Shraga in (I believe) the summer of 1967.

    You can hear the narrator (R’ Bader) stating at :10 mark: “Raphael Loeb was taking these shots.”

    Later at the 1:49 mark the narrator states,
    “Raphael Loeb did ask the Rosh Yeshiva, R’ Yaakov, if he had permission to take these shots. And it was granted.”
