Are you looking to extend your child’s exposure to Jewish experiences in a fun and informal way? Then consider having your child join a youth movement. There are a number of Jewish youth movements which operate actively in Sydney and run weekly meetings as well as summer and winter camps. The Jewish youth movements operating in Sydney include:
Most synagogues organise events suitable for children and youth for major festivals. Some also organise camps, particularly during the summer and winter school holidays. For school holiday camps run by synagogues we suggest you contact The Great Synagogue or South Head Synagogue.
In addition, some synagogues have appointed special youth rabbis to run programs catering specifically to children.
Maccabi offers opportunities to play a variety of sports with other Jewish players and develop friendships with them. For more information, please see the Maccabi website.
