Movement Work – the future is yours

April 2 2013

What would your life look like without LJY-Netzer*?

Thanks to Graham Carpenter and Bethany Stone, future generations of young people won’t have to find out. Graham and Bethany have stepped up – and been selected – to serve as Movement Workers in 5773-4 (2013-14). The good news is that there is still a space for the right candidate to join this life-changing team. Yes, that’s right. You could be PAID to CHANGE LIVES.

How many 22-year-olds do you know that get to be director of a national charity? How many young people do you know who get to gain proven career-enhancing skills while having fun? How about getting paid to make the world a better place? What are you waiting for? Pick up that phone thingy and call Shelley on 020 7580 1663 or pick up that same phone thingy and email her on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . She’ll give you a pack that you’ll need to return before the end of April or it will be too late – NO EXCEPTIONS - and you will have no choice but to join hundreds of thousands of young graduates and become the nameless pawn of yet another multinational corporation. Only kidding. Sort of. Yep.

So who would you be working with?

Graham is a music maven and soon-to-be Music Technology graduate who hails originally from the not-very-Jewish town of Reading. Glamorous, he is. A self-confessed oldie in the eyes of the movement (he’s almost 22! ), Graham says he’s joining the team because he’s just not ready to say goodbye to all the great experiences he’s had courtesy of LJY. He’s planning to bring his unique musical vibes and expertise to the post, particularly to breathe fresh ruach (spirit) into the movement’s legendary song-leading sessions. While Graham is all about revving up the Liberal Jewish soul, Bethany the budding psychologist is all about inspiring the Liberal Jewish mind – continuing the success and sheer impact of the movement le dor vador (from generation to generation). Bethany says that movement work is about embracing the ideology of youth empowerment by training leaders and promoting informed decision making. Together, Bethany and Graham represent an exciting new recipe for LJY-Netzer, and it has never been a better time to step up to the challenge of movement work.

You are not obliged to complete the work, neither are you free to desist from it.

The future is yours to shape. Do it. Now.

*LJY-Netzer is the youth movement of Liberal Judaism and provides amazing events (including residential camps) and informal education for young people aged 8 – 23.
