Netivim (Hebrew for pathways) is a year-long follow-up program to Lekhu Lakhem, allowing participating camp directors to continue learning with their colleagues, and to apply the lessons to achieving their camps’ Jewish missions. Netivim learning groups are currently exploring Jewish mysticism, gender and sexual identity, and ethics and tikkun olam, or repairing the world. Netivim is supported by a generous grant from the AVI CHAI Foundation.
