In 5776 (2015-16), Chagim Netzer was launched as a way of giving our chaverim the chance to engage with and celebrate Jewish festivals in an RSY-Netzer and Reform Jewish context. This page contains information, resources and other bits and pieces which have been produced as part of these festival celebrations and which we hope will add something to your celebrations too!
This resource gives texts and comments about the festival of Sukkot and its relevance to the crisis faced by refugees, especially those fleeing Syria today.
A page of information and opportunities about the ongoing refugee crisis and how you can get involved in supporting refugees in Britain today.
This booklet will help you to understand what the Seder is all about, give modern and Reform readings of the different sections of the Seder to help you get more meaning out of the ritual and includes some tasty recipes!
This accompaniment for your seder reminds us of the core messages of pesach of the move from slavery to freedom and underlines the link between our Jewish past and the present day experience of refugees

The Shavuot resource contains thoughts around the meaning of the festival and what it can inspire for us in our lives, as well as information about projects supporting education of young people in the UK and Israel which our movement is supporting.
