Investing in Youth

The future of Reform Judaism is in the hands of its youth, and the World Union focuses heavily on its large and rapidly growing Jewish youth movement, Netzer Olami (International Reform Zionist Youth).

Established in 1979, the Netzer Olami currently gathers approximately 16,000 people in 18 countries and inspires with love for Israel, the consciousness of the unity of the Jewish people and Jewish traditions in the context of modern democracy and pluralism. The Netzer Olami is the largest Jewish youth movement in the former Soviet Union, and with its recent affiliation to NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth-American Federation of young religious), became one of the largest Jewish youth movements in the world.
