Mizrachi gets young

The Jewish Chronicle - - CommunityNews -

NATHAN JE MIZRACHI, the re­li­gious-Zion­ist um­brella or­gan­i­sa­tion, has launched Young Mizrachi for young adults.

Mizrachi ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Jonny Lipczer told the JC there was a short­age of or­gan­i­sa­tions for the young mod­ern Ortho­dox and re­li­gious Zion­ists “af­ter they have out­grown Bnei Akiva”.

He also main­tained that there was a gap in the ed­u­ca­tional pro­vi­sion for the age group Young Mizrachi is aiming at.

“A cou­ple of decades ago, there were a variety of op­tions for young adults from the back­ground we wish to cater for. Now, as then, there are peo­ple who have grown out of their youth move­ments, but still en­joy the in­for­mal ed­u­ca­tional at­mos­phere.”

Where there was cur­rent pro­vi­sion, he said, it came from out­reach or Charedi groups. Mr Lipczer said that while Young Mizrachi had launched ini­tially in Lon­don, there are plans to run ac­tiv­i­ties na­tion­wide.

Pupils from Hacheder, the Stan­more Sy­n­a­gogue­based re­gional cheder, helped to sort back­packs for dis­tri­bu­tion by WJR un­der its new ‘Pack a Back­pack’ scheme. The project in­volved 500 back­packs be­ing sent to 500 Stan­more fam­i­lies who filled them with toi­letries, baby goods, gloves, scarves and other es­sen­tials, which were then dis­trib­uted by WJR to needy Jewish fam­i­lies in Ukraine, Moldova and Be­larus. The project was the idea of Stan­more mem­ber and WJR sup­porter Bernard Wolff
