Megachalutz: an inspiring experience
Written by Movement for Reform Judaism Friday, 05 September 2014
Megachalutz (chalutz, meaning 'pioneer' in Hebrew), is RSY-Netzer's pre-summer camp residential seminar; the time which the summer's madrichim (leaders) spend preparing for the arrival of hundreds of chanichim (participants). Megachalutz is a chance for the whole movement to spend some of that preparation time together with rabbis and educators before splitting off to the different sites where Shemesh summer camps take place. Emma Brand from Edgware and District Reform Synagogue reflects on an inspiring experience.
