    You Won't Believe What The 7 Principles Of LJY-Netzer Leadership Are!

    Number 4 is so accurate it hurts. Inspired by our pal Rabbi Jonathan "Big J" Sacks, we've put together a list of a few of the things which make LJY-Netzer leaders the best around. All this and more on Hadracha Seminar 2014: sign up at !!

    1. We like to spread the leadership love. / Via

    Being a madrich/a isn't all dorm time and discipline, it's about spreading the principles of Youth Empowerment, and inspiring the next generation of leaders to get involved and make a difference.

    2. We know how to big ourselves up. / Via

    Some people might put themselves down. Not us! Leaders help their chanichim understand the wider context of their actions. We do have an impact, we do make a difference.

    3. We care about the big issues.

    As our mate Big J has been known to say: 'We are free. We are responsible. And together we can change the world." Leadership is all about inspiring others to make a difference.

    4. We sometimes learn things without even meaning to.

    With our super-fresh ideology and our awesome knowledge skillz, it's hard to get through the day without spreading our wisdom.

    5. We make Judaism cool.

    Not connecting with your rabbi's sermon? On LJY we're all about Fun-Jew-Cation. We know the best ways to birkat, and sharpest ways to recite the Shema.

    6. We don't just teach, we learn

    The best leaders know themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and learn from their mistakes. Hadracha is like a yoga retreat for your leadership skills - every session we lead affects us as well as those we are leading.

    7. Leading is fun!

    Leading is really really fun. Stressful? Yeah. Difficult? At times. But the most rewarding things we do in life are the ones which challenge us.
