Shevet is a different and innovative programme for FZY Year Course and the British Jewish Community.
Shevet aims to provide a strong framework for chanichim to explore their Jewish observance in a group setting. Shevet is for those chanichim who want to increase their Jewish knowledge and observance during their year in Israel, through a non coercive Orthodox prism, but are not yet ready to commit to total Orthodox observance.
Shevet chanichim follow the Year Course programme as other chanichim do, yet they have their own group identity and a number of extra elements.
Dedicated Shevet Staff: Those chanichim on the Shevet programme have a Coordinator, whose job is to work with and inspire the chanichim throughout the year.
Zman Shevet: Each week there will be dedicated time for the Shevet programme to work with the coordinator and other educators. This time is fun, educational and inspiring and focuses on a different aspect of Judaism throughout the course.
Shabbat: Shabbat is an essential part of the week, and on a regular basis we will be holding Shabbatonim that will visit and experience unique Shabbat atmospheres across Israel.
Shevet Religious policies Chanichim are expected to keep kosher, observe Shabbat, and follow a dress code. These guidelines will be laid out but will not be enforced. Shevet aims to encourage Jewish Observance but not enforce it,
Shevet is endorsed by Tribe.
There is an additional cost for Shevet
