youth for youth expands with trip to Manchester

Some of our London-based Youth for Youth volunteers also travelled to Manchester last week to connect with their peers and expand the vital work of The Together Plan’s flagship programme for young people, Youth for Youth.  This project empowers young adults to revive Judaism and community life, not only in Belarus but across the UK, US, Israel, Germany, Ukraine, the Netherlands and elsewhere, and includes an annual residential summer programme in Belarus.  The event, which was was hosted by Manchester Menorah Synagogue (Cheshire Reform Congregation) and facilitated by youth worker Joel Stokes, also included vital contributions from the community’s Rabbi Fabian Sborovsky.  This was an eye-opening and insightful experience for all involved, and the start of an exciting new chapter in the life of Youth for Youth.
