FZY offers a variety of different activities throughout the year for anyone aged 13 and above. In addition to the year round activities on offer, FZY also offers a number of programmes during the summer. Click here for more information about the Summer Programmes FZY offers.
For members from the ages of 14 to 16 there are Chavurot (meetings) all over the country. These are societies, led by an elected committee of peers, who on Sunday evenings run educational and social activities. Many of these chavurot take place in member’s houses, in order to create an unrivalled family atmosphere. FZY has a large number of chavurot that take place all over the country, including London, Essex, Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow.
The 16 – 18 year olds in FZY join the kedma programme. This is a variety of different courses that run throughout the year which meet on a weekly or fortnightly basis. These courses could be anything from leadership training to Ulpan. Members can pick and choose which of these courses interest them. Kedma members are encourage to begin taking on leadership roles in the movement, with opportunities including being madrichim at the Chavurot to organising charity events.
Bogrim of the movement, those over the age of 18, engage in a variety of different activities and events, most based in the university centres which they attend. These are often led by themselves and include educational, social, and activism events. This may include inviting in a speaker; organising a quasar evening; or possibly embarking on a sponsored bike ride. The bogrim also lead our camps and our national seminars.
The elder members of FZY, generally post university age, are called Vatikim. Trips and events organised for them, for example a Poland trip or a quiz evening. Alternatively they could sit on a committee called Friends of FZY (FFZY) who raise money to fund bursaries for those members who cannot afford the costs of the programmes.
