Betar Italy is an active movement in Rome. It organizes many activities, functions, and Jewish youth camps in each state. The main events on Betar’s busy calendar are our beloved camps and seminars. Around Pesach, we run a Federal Senior Seminar for the years 10-12 to refresh their leadership, ideological and shnat understanding. In the following winter holidays, a winter camp occurs which is a chance for each state to rekindle their passion for Betar. The winter camps have the grade three to year tens as participants with the year elevens and above acting as leaders. This is often the first opportunity for the year elevens to lead in a comfortable warm atmosphere typical of all Betar camps.In the following September holidays, two seminars for the senior leaders occur to refresh their enthusiasm for Betar and in most years we have a Hadracha (Leadership) seminar for the year tens occurring each state.
Virtual after school aims to increase the number of children completing primary and secondary education in vulnerable communities (SDG4), strengthening their resilience and increasing their chances of getting out of poverty (SDG1). Virtual After School proposes to train and connect volunteers with school-age children of remote and/or at risk communities using technology platforms to support them with homework and to provide emotional support. As part of the program, the volunteers will be engaged in virtual peer meetings to be trained and to share experiences and learnings, expecting to empower them and to constitute a virtual community of young Jewish people committed to influence and lead positive changes in their communities.
