Shalom Judaeans! 

Welcome to the Kol Hatnua, Young Judaea’s national newsletter. We hope this finds you off to a remarkable start of the new year.

Every year during asepha, or the Young Judaea election process, an election is held to select the national initiative for the upcoming year. The national initiative was created in honor of Anne Heyman, a Judaean who dedicated her life to social change. The goals for the 2021-2022 national initiative are to provide a multi-faceted education about the Israel-Palestine conflict and to combat antisemitism. Our programs will encompass many different perspectives in order for chanichim to develop knowledge and be well versed in the complexities of these topics. 

In addition to implementing this new initiative, we are excited to bring back in person events, including conventions! Some of our “typical” YJ programs will be taking on new forms, one of which will be hosting Shabbatons in all the regions. This year, rather than having Alternative Winter Break, we will host an innovative Israel program for 12th graders in December, and we will be combining Northeast Regional and National Convention this year to make one big convention in the spring for the entire movement! 

We can’t wait to spend this exciting year with you! 

Your National Mazkirut
