LJY-Netzer Shnatties come home

18th August 2015

The participants on Shnat Netzer, LJY-Netzer's gap year programme in Israel for 18 year olds, have returned home.

The 2014/15 cohort – which had four participants from four different Liberal Jewish communities – spent eight months exploring Israel’s diverse geographical landscape, learning Hebrew, studying Zionism, living as part of an ideological community, training to become leaders and having lots and lots of fun.

They spent one month on Kibbutz Lotan, an ecological community in the beautiful Negev desert, four months volunteering on local community projects and four months in Jerusalem undertaking intensive study on a huge range of subjects.

Now they are home, the Shnatties are bringing their new skills and experience to Machaneh Kadimah summer camp, where they will be youth leaders.
