North Shore Temple Emanuel
a Progressive Jewish Congregation
The Netzer youth movement continues to play a key role in the lives of our younger members. Since more than 22% of our membership is below the age of 18, it is pleasing to know that Netzer is contributing to the Jewish development of this demographic group.
NSTE is proud to have a high level of engagement with Netzer. In the last Junior and Senior summer camps, about 50 children aged between eight and 18 years, amounting to nearly half of the total participants, were from NSTE.
One or both of our Rabbis always visit and teach the kids at Netzer camp, which occurs twice every year.
Five of the six returning 2016 'shnatties' (who spent a year in Israel on the 'Shnat' program), are currently the bogrim (leaders) of the Netzer Sydney branch. They are also NSTE members!

In 1979, a group of Progressive youth decided to seed an intentional community based on the values of Reform Zionism, Tikkun Olam, Progressive Judaism, and education – creating Netzer - the progressive Jewish youth movement. Since then, Netzer has grown to become the vibrant youth movement of the Australian Progressive community that we know today. Throughout our 39 years, we continue to maintain a commitment to developing the Progressive Jewish identities and communities of our chanichim (participants) and madrichim (leaders).
We are incredibly excited to launch Netzer’s upcoming Winter Camps. Netzer camps are a unique opportunity of informative, educational, and immersive experience for children in years 3-11. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the magic of Netzer camp and to become a part of our ever-growing Netzer Family!
Our madrichim are already working away building our camp season and we hope you will join us this winter!
Netzer Sydney Winter Camp - year groups 3-11 will take place between the 10th - 15th of July.
