Join with other young people from Liberal Judaism communities in years 9 & 10 to explore ‘Judaism in plain sight’ – what does it mean to be Jewish in today’s world?
Kabbalat Torah is the journey to developing independence and knowledge within our Jewish practise. This programme is a chance to examine our Liberal values and traditions, and where they fit into modern life; in plain sight.
Day visits and weekend residentials around the UK, guided by experts and activists, will enable you to explore your Jewish identity and question the status quo. Judaism in Plain Sight will consist of three weekends and two day trips, with visits to Liberal Jewish communities around the country including London and Birmingham.
The programme kicks off with a weekend in Birmingham, which will include a hands-on social action opportunity and a chance to meet the other participants.
