Noar Telem (“Noar” means youth, and “Telem” is the Hebrew acronym for Movement for Progressive Judaism) is the IMPJ’s youth movement, providing experiential activities for children from 4th grade through 12th grade. Local programs at centers around Israel include social activities and programs, enabling the children to encounter the values of the IMPJ: An acquaintance with Jewish tradition and culture, social justice, equality and democracy. National activities include seminars, tours and summer camps.
Each summer, the IMPJ summer camps attract several hundred young Israelis interested in an experience combining plenty of sun ‘n’ fun with an opportunity to learn and experience Progressive Judaism in a full-time (though temporary) community setting. Older children (9th grade and up) play an important role as junior counselors working with the younger campers.
