Netzer Australia is a Progressive, Zionist Youth Movement, which aims to inspire and educate the youth of our community. We are a nonprofit organisation run by skilled volunteer madrichim (leaders) of university age who have completed intensive leadership training and education.

The word ‘נצר – Netzer’ is an acronym for “נוער ציוני רפורמי – No’ar Tzioni Reformi” – Progressive, Zionist, Youth.

These are the foundations of Netzer’s Ideology: Progressive Judaism, Reform Zionism, and Youth engagement.

Netzer uses informal education to run a variety of activities that are both fun and intellectually challenging. We aim to empower the youth and encourage them to be active participants of the Progressive community. Netzer is a world-wide movement which is affiliated with the World Union for Progressive Judaism and has branches (sniffim) in fourteen countries.

Netzer Australia has been providing positive and vibrant Jewish experiences for our community and its youth for 40 years. Through Netzer, our participants engage with their Jewish identity, making lifelong friends and become leads of our community.

With your help and generosity, Netzer Australia can ensure that every young person who wishes to embrace their Jewish identity and develop their leadership skills is capable of doing so.
