The Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe, in partnership with Limmud International, welcomes applications to participate in the 4th MATARA programme for European Jewish Youth Educators and Activists to take place from the 26th December 2014 to the 1st January 2015 at the Limmud UK conference. Matara is a self-contained training programme where participants work as a group to gain knowledge and skills essential to educators and educationally-oriented activists within their Jewish community.
Up to 20 young educators and community activists are sponsored to participate in a specialised professional development programme at the Limmud Conference in the UK. Led by Sonja Vilicic and Steve Israel, Matara is designed to enhance Jewish knowledge, discuss contemporary issues in Jewish society and offer an insight into relevant aspects of informal education, theory and practice.
The Matara Programme is designed for full or part-time youth leaders and educators, activists and volunteers between the ages of 20 – 27 years working with Jewish youth across Europe.
