Netzer reports on Veidah Olamit

Veidah Olamit this year was held online, our first ever virtual veidah.

We kicked off the weekend seminar with a Global Kabbalat Shabbat Service as we visited every corner of the globe to hear our amazing Netzer song leaders welcome in Shabbat with all the very best Netzer tunes. (Watch at:
Passcode: 4.JVg=1a)

Over the course of the weekend we ran alternative services and peulot with the running theme of Redefining Connection.

The final element to our online veidah was of course our Aseifah where we voted in two new sniffim (branches) to our global Netzer family tree! A very huge welcome to Netzer Barcelona and Netzer Argentina to our Global Progressive Jewish Youth Movement!

“It felt nice to be part of something greater, to work alongside people from all over the world to make decisions that matter together.” — Erick Finger, Brazil

“It was so beautiful to celebrate Shabbat and learn with friends from all around the world. We rarely get such opportunities!” — Hannah Taylor, US

“Kabbalat Shabbat at our online Veidah was an experience of an incredible union of young Jewish voices, singing songs new and old.” — Eden Shapira, South Africa
