Young Libs out to launch

January 12, 2012

Liberal Judaism has launched "Routes", a series of monthly events for supporters in their 20s and 30s.

It is led by Rabbi Anna Gerrard, 31, and is intended for both young Jews and their non-Jewish friends and partners. Activities will offer a "cultural, social, learning and spiritual space that connects to Judaism in a way that is relevant, thought-provoking and enjoyable".

Participants will have the opportunity to run their own one-off or regular events, promoted under the umbrella name, "Grass Routes".

"The Chanucah party which we held at the Elixir Bar in Euston was a huge success that we hope to build on," Rabbi Gerrard said. "We have some great events lined up at the same venue, including an Israeli film night and a performance from a Jewish singer-songwriter.

"All events will be listed in our monthly electronic mailing, on our LJRoutes Facebook page and on the @LJRoutes Twitter feed."
