Liberal youth bake in the winter sun

Twenty-four young Liberal Jews enjoyed a weekend of praying, playing and baking at the LJY-Netzer POW4NOW event on October 26-28 at Southgate Progressive Synagogue.

The youngsters, ranging in age from 7-13 and including six new LJY-Netzer members, took part in the residential weekend, which offers a taster for larger get-togethers and camps later in the year.

Overseen by a team of leaders and LJY-Netzer’s movement workers, the children took part in Shacharit, Kabbalat Shabbat and Havdalah services and a group outing to the park.

 LJY-Netzer movement worker Sam Cohen said: “The POW4NOW weekend was a fantastic success and showed both the fun and serious sides of Liberal Judaism.

“The most common question we got asked afterwards was how people can sign up for our Spring Camp in February, which is always a good sign!”
