This summer LJY-Netzer will be taking a group of 16 year olds around Israel, for a life changing experience.

Israel Tour is an amazing opportunity to experience the country, exploring the land from top to bottom.

Whether or not you’ve been before, Tour is the perfect opportunity to discover this fascinating land and develop your understanding of Israel and Judaism. Whether this is your first or 50th LJY-Netzer event, you will be welcomed with open arms.

This trip will give you the chance to explore the desert in the South, kayak down the Jordan River in the North, experience modern Israeli culture in Tel Aviv and discover a special spirituality in Jerusalem.

LJY-Netzer Tour truly does offer something for everyone. Not only will you discover more about yourself and bond as a group, you will have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills and meet loads of new people.

LJY-Netzer is also proud that, through a Liberal framework, it acknowledges and educates about unique challenges of Israel. This includes listening to and engaging with multiple narratives working for positive change in Israel from across the spectrum. Our madrichim (leaders) provide a safe space for chanichim (participants) to grapple with the challenging subjects in a sensitive manner with a variety of information.

Israel Tour takes place from 17 July until 7 August 2018 (dates subject to change) and costs £3,100 for Liberal Judaism members or £3,200 for non-members. For more information, or to sign up, please contact me on e.lawson@liberaljudaism.org or 0207 631 9823.

We believe that no one should be prevented from coming on LJY-Netzer Israel Tour. So for more information about bursaries, please contact our Director of Youth, Rebecca Fetterman, on r.fetterman@liberaljudaism.org or 0207 631 9831.

We also have our Israel Tour Taster Day coming up on the 10 December at Finchley Progressive Synagogue. This fun-filled day is a great chance to meet all the new people that will be coming on Israel Tour, as well as getting an idea of what Israel Tour is going to be like and access the programme.

Most importantly it will be a place where the start of friendships are formed, which can continue on for the rest of your life.

We are also holding a parents evening from 17:30-18:30 on the same day to give a presentation about Israel Tour; and answer any questions.

Israel Tour is a fantastic opportunity to continue or start your Liberal Jewish journey. Israel Tour Taster day is a gentle way to find out about LJY-Netzer and to see whether Israel Tour is right for you, with no commitment or cost.

So contact us now and come along! For more information on both of these events, please visit LJY-Netzer’s website at www.ljy-netzer.org
