Reshet (meaning ‘network’ in Hebrew) is a small unit, established by UJIA and the Jewish Leadership Council, to bring together organisations and professionals in informal Jewish education and improve this vital provision.
The initiative is working with informal Jewish educators in schools, synagogues, youth movements, organisations and clubs across the UK, boosting engagement with young people now and for future generations. With Reshet’s support, educators are building strong Jewish identities and creating opportunities for young people who are eager to lead and are committed to engagement with Israel.
