Over the past 2 weeks, Shira Appelboom (current Federal Mazkira) and Joel McCarroll (Incoming Federal Mazkir) went to Shanghai to attend Limmud China and run Netzer activities for the Kehilat Shanghai community.
Limmud China was an amazing event which attracted almost 200 people. We ran programs about Tikkun Olam, Expressing Jewish identity, Chanukah and taught many songs. During the week we had a number of home visits where we ran further activities for the kids in the community and taught prayers to those who we hope will be the future song leaders (and guitarists) of Kehilat Shanghai.
We were hosted by Kehilat Shanghai for their regular Shabbat Dinner, which was full of friendly faces and lots of music. We also had the opportunity to present Netzer to the Kehilat Shanghai board and discuss the prospect of a partnership and future Netzer-Shanghai activities. We hope to see some of the kids on our winter camps next year!
We would like to thank Kehilat Shanghai for the opportunity to work together. It truly was an amazing Netzer experience. A special thank you to Arie Shreier for coordinating the visit, and all those who hosted us and welcomed us so warmly.
We look forward to future activities with Kehilat Shanghai!
