Netzer fires it up this winter season

Netzer at Zeitz MOCAA

This past month has been a big step for Netzer as the winter season is when we embrace our Netzer spirit and encourage our channichimot to join us for Summer Machaneh. We’ve spent our June and July training and refreshing new maddrichimot in all things Netzer, as well as hosting two big events: our Cape Town Winter Day Camps and Winter Shabbaton Nilmad V’Na’aseh. 

Our first Hadrachah seminar for the winter was from Friday 16 June to Saturday 17 June, accompanied by a Shabbat Netzer service that we hosted on the Friday night at Temple Israel Wynberg. We moved into our Winter Day Camps which ran from 3 to 7 July. We took our channichimot for both fun and empowering outings and activities, such as a visit to Clay Cafe, outreach activities, visiting Zeitz Mocaa and hiking Silvermine.

We then jumped right into our Winter Shabbaton planning with our second Hadrachah seminar, running from 10 to 13 July, and having our Shabbaton Nilmad V’Na’aseh from 14 – 16 July. We were at the Habonim campsite in Onrus and spent the weekend empowering our channichimot to be the future leaders of the Netzer movement by educating them on its structure and runnings.
