This spring Marom, in conjunction with Noam, is hosting a 5 day seminar in Israel examining local and global social justice issues. You will spend each day of the trip learning about a different social issue by engaging and volunteering with various organizations looking for the solutions. As part of this seminar, you will have the opportunity to grapple with social justice in modern times and in the Jewish tradition and to discuss ways to make an impact on these issues in Israel, the UK, and the world.
Price: £170 + airfare
If you would like to participate, please email [email protected] by 8 February to express interest as places are extremely limited.

At a recent Marom meeting a group of young adults came together to talk about community organising and working with London Citizens. London Citizens is an organisation that develops leadership within communities, supporting people to campaign on the issues they care about. It is based on 'community organising', something that is popular in the United States and has gained prominence since Barack Obama, a former community organiser, ran for President. The organisation works with people from a wide range of faith communities, as well as trade unions, community groups and schools.
London Citizens has a number of branches, each of which is run by a professional community organiser. Branches currently exist in East, South and West London, and a new branch in North London will be operational later this year. The group explored the role that Marom could play in shaping this branch from the outset.
A number of London Citizens and Marom events will be taking place in the coming weeks and months. If you are interested in getting involved, or would just like more information, please contact James Green at [email protected].

*What is Four by Two? Well, FOUR Jews from Islington, Highbury, Hackney and Clerkenwell decided one day that they had had enough of schlepping to the Northwest London ghetto to enjoy a nice Shabbas dinner. So they decided to hold some Friday night dinners of their own, about every TWO months. Oh and fittingly for the area, 'Four By Two' is also cockney rhyming slang for Jew!
So, if you live in Islington/Hackney/City/Highbury areas, please email us on [email protected] with your name, age and postcode to gain more details. Kosher dinners are kindly sponsored by Masorti, we ask only that you bring a bottle of wine and a parev (non-milky) dessert.
Marom helps informal communities and groups of Masorti young adults in their 20s and 30s to engage in Shabbat meals, Jewish learning, social action, and many more exciting events. We currently support communities in Finchley, St. Alban’s, Golders Green, Islington, and in Borehamwood. Inbar has helped facilitate events ranging from Torah Tea parties
If you have your own idea for an event for your friends (and friends of friends) please contact Inbar and she will be happy to help you get started. We are exctied to support everything from Shabbat meals to shiurim, social action projects to social gatherings and more!
