NOAM members participate in weekly activities, Shabbatonim (weekend events), seminars and tikkun olam, social action projects. Educational programming focuses on subjects such as Jewish identity, Zionism, Jewish education and more. All activities emphasize the importance of Jewish traditions infused with the pluralistic and inclusive outlook that characterizes Masorti Judaism. Every young person is made to feel welcome and acquires a sense of belonging.
Age-appropriate activities take place on both local and national levels. Participation in NOAM provides unforgettable experiences and the opportunity for friendship while instilling leadership skills and Jewish values.
Each year, a NOAM group volunteers for community service, following high school graduation. Participants may work as coordinators in NOAM chapters, fulfilling requirements for national service in the IDF. NOAM also supports IDF Nahal (Pioneer Fighting Youth) units, in which members combine army service with community outreach. NOAM graduates are well integrated into all programs of the Masorti movement and are often instrumental in helping the movement grow.
Shirat Machar is NOAM's co-ed vocal performance group. They are featured at many events. To learn more about Shirat Machar and to view their performance at Masorti's 35th Anniversary Gala, click here.
