RSY-Netzer defines itself as an ideological youth movement, wanting to give our chaverim (members) power and a voice. To this end, the movement has an ideology which is determined by Veidah. This is an event on which all chaverim of post-tour age (normally 16+) can come, be educated on relevant issues, debate and decide on our ideology. This ideology is then compiled into our Policies, Beliefs and Actions document, commonly known as the PB&A.
However, because there are so many issues which movement chaverim feel passionate about, the PB&A is a long document, featuring issues both big and small in great detail. Whilst this shows chaverim are able to be activists for change, this does mean that it is often not the most useful document for people who want to gain a general understanding or overview of our movement ideology.
Therefore, in 5773/2013 a motion was proposed to Veidah and passed which mandated the creation of a companion version of the PB&A which would be more accessible for all chaverim of the movement, especially those who are younger and those who may come with a less detailed understanding of the movement’s ideology in the first place. This document hopes to act out that vision.
