Netzer SA — back in action

Maddies and channies (blue team) prepping for colour wars song session

Netzer SA made sure to bring back the spirit this year. We tapped into the classic songs and sang for meals, ma’amadim and executed creative peulot for everyone to feel that nostalgia of the machaneh lifestyle. Our maddie guests from France and the UK lead our singing with passion.

Our theme was Olam Metakun (A world which we are repairing). Like a single hydrangea sprouting from a seed to become one within a bed, Netzer rebuilt itself after a lengthy pandemic in order to repair the community. 

Some highlights included traditions like Shabbos and havdallah, hiking and cooling off at the dam, candle lighting and latka making on Channukah, colour wars, beach and channies day. — Maya Reitstein
