Liberal Judaism has sent its largest ever number of young people on Israel Tour.
Forty-nine participants from Liberal youth movement LJY-Netzer, along with five leaders, landed in Israel yesterday.
The group, aged 16 and 17, come from all over the UK, including London, Hertfordshire, Harrow, Bristol, Birmingham, Nottingham and Buckinghamshire. There are also international participants, with Liberal Jews based in Milan and LA joining the trip.
Liberal Judaism’s director of youth, Rebecca Fetterman, said: “The numbers, which are up 50 per cent on last year, are a real tribute to our LJY-Netzer movement workers, who have spent the last year promoting Israel Tour in our communities and showing young people how it really is an inspirational and life-changing experience.
“It also proves the growing interest among young British Jews for a truly egalitarian and inclusive Israel Tour, that looks at all sides of the country.”
