FZY yearcourse group raise money for Yemin Orde

By FZY Year Course, December 10, 2010

Last night FZY and Young Judaea took to the streets of Jerusalem to raise money for Yemin Orde, a youth village destroyed by the fire in the North of Israel. The Israeli public is horrified by the wildfire and we felt a sense of duty to contribute in whatever way possible. We’ve just began the Jerusalem semester of the Year Course programme and we are eager to get involved with charitable campaigns that fulfill FZY’s emphasis on the importance of tzedakah.

A Message to all 6th Formers...

As the years have gone by FZY has had numerous recruiters persuading people to go on Year Course. Some people know that Year Course is for them where as others are indecisive and need help making up their mind. I was one of those last minute people that completed my form after everyone else. It took a lot of questions that I ran over and over in my mind. What if I don’t like it? What if no one likes me? How can I cook, clean and even just live by myself!? This is something I could not comprehend.

Four years ago, I remember sitting in my kvutsah room on Fzy Ofek camp, and my leaders told me that they had just come back from the best 9 months of their lives and that, please g-d one day, I would be able to experience what they were talking about.

FZY on Year Course - Siyur to Sderot

By FZY Year Course, November 14, 2010

It may have been peace and quiet now, but shrapnel wounds in the surrounding buildings and sight of bomb shelter after bomb shelter standing alongside the everyday homes, shops and restaurants were timely reminders of darker times. This trip to Sderot had really taken the Arad participants to one of the key battlegrounds in Israel’s recent history. Standing no more than a few kilometres from the Hamas controlled territory of the Gaza strip, the town had been under constant rocket fire for close to 10 years.
