Hadracha Course


Hadracha means leadership…Ever wondered how your leaders always seem to know what to do in any situation? Well, odds are, it is because they were lucky enough to attend Hadracha Seminar! HadSem is a highlight of the LJY-Netzer year. This is where you can develop your skills to become an LJY-Netzer madrich/a (leader). Time to give something back to the movement—whilst still having buckets of KEF and learning invaluable life leadership skills…..


Our hadracha training programme has changed. In trying to adapt to the needs of the movement, we have expanded from just having a Hadracha Seminar to also having specialised Yamei Hadracha (days of leadership), as well as a portion of Tikkun Kehila (care of the community) which involves 10 hours of volunteering in the Liberal Jewish world.


On the seminar the aim is to establishing a significant basic level of leadership knowledge, which will prepare  you for leadership roles on minor events over the next year (Weekends, Kinus). This includes learning how to write sessions, conduct services, improvise, and create a community of respect. You must have been on the seminar to lead on minor events, however if you’ve been to a seminar before, you can still attend again.


The rest of the course includes attending at least 2 out of 4 more advanced and specialised Yamei Hadracha, including Welfare, Respect & Control, Songleading & Prayer and Chinuch (informal education),  and completing 10 hours Tikkun Kehila, voluntary work in the Jewish community. Only once you have completed the course (and returned us the form below) can you lead on our major events (Machaneh Aviv & Kadimah).

We are really excited that LJY-Netzer has just been approved as a Vaward provider.  The vInspired awards are a recognition scheme for young volunteers. They have been designed to celebrate the efforts and achievements of volunteers aged 14-25 in England and recognise the amazing things young people do. They are designed to show colleges, universities and potential employers the positive impact young volunteers have had on their communities and the skills they have gained through their experiences.
