LJY-Netzer

FAQs - Paticipants

  • I don’t know anyone on LJY-Netzer is that okay?
    That’s not a problem. Lots of people who come on our events don’t know anyone but they all leave with loads of friends of all ages! The beginning of every event is all about getting to know each other so you have no need to worry.
  • Can I be in a room with my friends?
    On our weekends we have a girls room and a boys room so you will be in the same room if possible. On our larger events we give you the chance to say 3 people you would like to be in a room with and we will see what we can do.
  • What is the food like?
    LJY-Netzer is vegetarian but that doesn’t mean we don’t have good food! The food is great! We have lots of fantastic pasta, pizza, soup and salad as well as awesome desserts.
  • What are the beds like?
    When you are at a synagogue (like at a weekend) you will be sleeping on the floor but on our larger events you get a bed which is really comfy so you can get a good night’s sleep.
  • What sort of sessions will there be?
    We have sessions about everything from football to Harry Potter, dancing to juggling and even cloud gazing and friendship bracelet making. We can guarantee there will be sessions that you love all the time!
  • It’s my birthday on the event. Can I have a party?
    Of course you can! And it will be the best one you have ever had! Everyone who has a birthday gets a birthday cake and an awesome celebration where everyone sings to you, you skip around the room and have a day you’ll never forget!
  • I don’t like swimming. Is that okay?
    Not a problem. If you don’t like swimming you don’t have to go. Swimming is an optional session so there is always something else to do if you don’t want to go swimming.
  • What do I need to bring?
    We will tell you what you need to bring but usually a change of clothes, something to wear for Shabbat, your toothbrush and toothpaste, a sleeping bag and your favourite teddy bear will be fine.
  • Can I call home?
    On our weekends there isn’t much chance to call home as it is sooo jam-packed with fun session and things but if you really need to call home you can ask the Movement Worker about it. On our larger events there are payphones available for you to use during free time.
  • How much education is there?
    We usually have one educational session a day but even that is done in a fun way where you talk to your friends about things, do arts and crafts, act a bit and also learn something!
  • Is it like Cheder/Saturday/Sunday School?
    Not really. We don’t sit in classrooms and talk at you but instead we do lots of discussions, acting, drawing and creative stuff. We think that learning about your Judaism should be a really exciting experience supplementary to your cheder/Jewish school. If you haven’t found Jewish education inspiring before you’ll be surprised with what you get out of our sessions.
