Israel Tour: engaging young people with Israel and Reform Judaism

Written by Movement for Reform Judaism Wednesday, 26 February 2014

RSY-Netzer Israel Tour 2014 is completely sold out! We have the amazing privilege of accompanying nearly 250 sixteen year olds, on what, for many, will be there first experience with Israel. At a hugely transitional time for teenagers, RSY-Netzer seeks to foster conscious engagement with Israel; providing balanced and nuanced education that is fun and interesting to connect with. On RSY-Netzer Israel Tour, you are immersed in a progressive and accessible Jewish environment, where you can feel proud to recognise and develop your Jewish identity and make Jewish friends. We are committed to creating a safe and supportive atmosphere on Tour, where participants can enjoy developing their connection to Israel, Reform Judaism, Reform Zionism, social justice and each other.

Written by Movement for Reform Judaism Monday, 17 February 2014

On Sunday morning February 2nd Alyth (North Western Reform Synagogue) held a unique commemoration of the centenary of World War One. Alyth members Kitty Freund, who is aged 101, and Alfred Silvertown, who is aged 99, held an audience of around eighty people spellbound as they spoke of their experiences growing up in the 1910s and 1920s and especially the effect that the War had on their lives. One young man at the event, Solly Brass, sketched them both and presented his pictures to them after he had heard them.
