Hineni- I Am Here

Hineni is a forum for Jewish Youth to explore Modern Orthodoxy, Pluralist Zionism as well as General Political and Global Issues.  Hineni strives to be an environment for the social interaction and informal education of as many Jewish youth as possible.  Hineni hosts regular programmes, events, youth minyanim, winter and summer camps, as well as leadership and educational seminars for the youth.
Through Hineni's hadracha (leadership) training, we play an important role in encouraging Jewish youth to develop skills and attributes to grow as young people, to assist the movement and subsequently the wider community.  Many of Hineni's senior madrichim spend a year on the Shnat Israel Program designed for school leavers.  They always return inspired and enthusiastic to share their new found knowledge and experience.
 
Hineni is run by the youth, for the youth and we strive to infuse informal education with fun, to create experiential learning that leaves a lasting impact on our chanichim.  Hineni, literally meaning "Here I Am", aims to instill its madrichim and chanichim with a strong sense of Jewish identity, a commitment to social justice, tikkun loam and derech eretz.


In Sydney, Hineni is directly affiliated to The Central Synagogue.  Our Hineni rooms are located within the shul and we have access to all of the shul's facilities.  In conjunction with the Synagogue we celebrate and participate in all the Jewish festivals throughout the year, host Shabbat dinners and partake in minyanim and shul services.
