The Movement for Reform Judaism proudly presents our brand-new podcast “Rabbiting On” with Rabbis Robyn Ashworth-Steen, Miriam Berger and Debbie Young-Somers.
Episode 6 – 22/07/21 – The Power of Youth (movements)!

Youth Movements provide unique spaces for young people to feel included, celebrated and to make friends. So many adults who grew up in Jewish youth movements like RSY-Netzer, and others, go on to flourish professionally and live out their values as activists and leaders. Leadership (Hadracha), interpersonal and social skills, creativity, a sense of social justice and passion for repairing the world (Tikkun Olam) are the fabric of our Jewish Youth Movements and this week the rabbis remember their own experiences with a special interview from Rabbi Robyn’s husband, Anthony Ashworth-Steen, about his journey.
