In March 19-21, Hashomer Hatzair Germany & ROSBOT* organized a seminar with 40 activists and educators from Germany, Israel and Poland, in cooperation with the Willy Brandt Center in Jerusalem. The activity was followed by an open reception (Pessach-Empfang) hosted by Ken Berlin. This was the first in what Hashomer Hatzair Germany is hoping to become a new tradition for the Jewish movement in Germany, together with its partners and friends.
The seminar was planned to take place during the biggest Jewish holiday, Passover, to reflect the ideas of freedom and promote Jewish perspectives in the field of education work in Germany. The training was formed through the framework of peer-education, and based upon socialist and social-democratic values, with 3 working group topics: Jewish Women’s Movement, Judaism in the German Democratic Republic, and Secular Jewish Life Today.
In addition to the seminar, the seminar’s team organized an introduction workshop on intersectionality. Moreover, the participants were invited to join additional programs during their breaks and in the evening, such as the film screening of Masel Tov Cocktail, followed by a talk and Q&A session with the film director Arkadij Khaet.
In July 2021 a follow-up booklet for educators will be published in a special event that will take place near Berlin.
