Reshet, the network for Jewish Youth Provision, held its inaugural conference this week, 21st Century Teens.

The first conference of its kind in the UK for nearly 20 years, it brought together more than 200 informal Jewish educators from Jewish schools, synagogues, youth movements and, most importantly, young people.

The conference, which was supported by The Children’s Aid Charity, addressed issues specific to teenagers that many practitioners within the Jewish community are grappling with, such as teen culture, involvement and empowerment.

The conference was chaired by UJS president Hannah Brady and UJIA director of informal education and Israel engagement Anthony Ashworth-Steen.
