ShnUpdate - Perach 27.02.20

This week marks Netzer South Africa & Australia’s one month since arriving in Israel, and three weeks since having met our Northerners.

At the end of last week, we shared our first Shabbat together of Shnat Netzer as a kehilla, coming together through the beauty of Jewish ritual.
