Netzer: Progressive Zionist Youth

Netzer is the Zionist youth movement of the Progressive Jewish Community of Australia. We are part of an expanding world-wide movement, with Netzer branches in Israel, North and South America and Europe. We are also expanding within Australia — we have chanichim (participants) in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth.

Netzer is an environment in which Jewish children can socialize and be inspired to remain an active part of the Reform Jewish community.Through informal education on and personal engagement with Israel, progressive Judaism and the principles of Tikkun Olam (healing the world), youth lead youth in realizing their Jewish identity.

Netzer runs summer and winter camps, tiyulim (trips), seminars, monthly kabbalat shabbat minyanim and fortnightly events for chanichim from Year 3 to Year 12. Chanichim have the opportunity to complete a leadership course during Year 10, and to be Madrichim (leaders) in Year 11. School-leavers are offered a year-long Israel-based leadership course, Shnat Netzer.
