LJY-Netzer is an ideological youth movement. This means we have a set of values that guide everything that we do. There are four main pillars of our ideology: Liberal Judaism, Progressive Zionism, Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) and Youth Empowerment. Our ideology shapes how we run our movement and events, ensuring that all aspects of the ideology are covered on each event. See below for more details.
We strive to be active in our commitment to Tikkun Olam (Repair of the World) on all levels, from the self (Tikkun Atzmi) to social action on a range of communal and global issues.
Tikkun Olam Of The Year (TOOTY)
Every year on our decision making event (Veidah) we decide our tikkun olam focus.
Youth Empowerment is fundamental to the running of our Youth Movement. Every member of the movement is under 25 and we take time to make sure everyone has a say in its running.
One way that we really carry out our ideology is through our veidah.
We are a Reform Zionist Youth movement, who encourage our members to develop a personal and nuanced relationship with Israel that will develop over time.
Trips to Israel
We offer two incredible trips to Israel. Israel Tour (the summer tour for 16 year olds) and Shnat Netzer (our gap year programme).
