A LITTLE MORE ABOUT BET2BOG...
We’ll be kick-starting the Bet2Bog transition on our exciting residential launch shabbaton. This is where your group will meet and become a kehilla (community) for the first time on your Bet2Bog journey. As well as having loads of KEF, we’ll look at what ideological youth movements are about and what it means to build a Reform kehilla by running peer led activities for each other and creating your own group identity. By the end of the weekend, you’ll be raring to go and one step closer on your journey towards becoming bogrim.
Veidah (Where the movement makes its decisions) and Pre-Veidah day
On our pre-Veidah day event we will come back together as a Bet2Bog kehilla focussing on RSY-Netzer and our role as bogrim. We’ll look at the PB&A (policies, beliefs and actions), think about where we’d like the movement to go, and based on these discussions we will create proposals to bring to veidah. This is your chance to have your say on RSY-Netzer’s ideology, ensuring the movement represents it’s chaverim (members).
We will then go to RSY-Netzer’s Veidah (the price of which is included in Bet2Bog) where we will make ideological decisions together with the rest of the movement, be educated on public proposals and have a crazy amount of KEF!
Did you leave tour wanting to explore Israel in greater depth?
On Bet2Bog, you can have that chance! Together we will kick off our summer by going to Israel in June. We’ll visit places you’ve never seen before, encounter people you won’t have had the chance to meet and have the freedom to shape our own journey. Our trip will take us to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to find out how reform Jewish values are being enacted in the Jewish State. We will explore the place of Reform Judaism and our movement in Israel. Most importantly, it will be an amazing opportunity to have another fantastic experience with a close group. You will create a deeper connection to Israel, Netzer Olami and other people in your shichvah (year group). This is your chance to create your own unique Israel experience.
Sikkum Seminar and Shiva Reunion
This event will bring together the Bet2Bog programme and the returning shnatties as you become one shichva of incredible bogrim.
Over the course of the two days we will sikkum as our own Bet2Bog Community, share experiences from both our groups’ past years; coming together to learn, sing and bond together. This will support you all as you transition into the next part of your RSY-Netzer journey as BOGRIM!
