Va’ad T’nua (Movement Committee)

The Va'ad T'nua - Movement Committee - is the heart of Noam. It comprises 7 bogrim, school leavers, of the movement and the current movement workers. 

The Va'ad T'nua's role is to assist the Mazkirut (movement workers) during the year. They act as the sounding board for the members of the movement, helping to set priorities, ensuring that Veida motions are carried out and they help the movement flourish by running events. They are also involved in choosing the next Mazkirut.

Each member takes on a specific role, either related to one of Noam's branches or our events. Take a look below to meet the team!

I started my Noam Rollercoaster as a chanicha on Nofim Bet. Noam has given me a truckload of love and I just want to hug everyone in the movement! I'm on the Va'ad T'nua to make sure our movement listens to our many voices so it can continue to inspire generations, and to make sure that the Noam values stay alive throughout the year so we can stay true to what we are so passionate about on camp. I also enjoy wearing unitards and my favourite reality TV show is The Great Pottery Throwdown.

I started my Noam journey as a chanicha way back on Shorashim Aleph and every year since I’ve counted down the days until the bus arrives to shlep us to Wales each year. During 7 years on Noam I have been inspired by Noam’s values and all the amazing people who are part of this movement. Noam has helped make me the person I am today and I can’t wait for this year on the Va’ad T’nua and the opportunity to give back to the movement that has given me so much.

I started doing Noam when I was 7 years old and have been hooked ever since! I used to be on the Moetza and when the Va'ad Tnua was created it seemed like the next thing to do in my Noam journey so when I got the chance to be elected this year I was very excited. I'm now the responsible for CCR and Democratic Community with Gaby and it's great. I'm incredibly excited to try and help Noam become as good as it can be.

Yoni Stone

Masorti
Since my first Noam summer on Shorashim א in 2006, the movement has become a central part of my life and has provided spaces which have developed both my ideology and myself. I am currently in Jerusalem, spending the year studying at the Conservative Yeshiva, further fostering my engagement with Masorti Judaism and Zionism. For me, the Va'ad Tnua is an embodiment of our democratic community. It is a forum where bogrim are consulted on key decisions, enabling the youth to be at the centre of the youth movement and where they can hold the mazkirut to account on motions passed during asefot. That is why I wanted to be on the Va'ad Tnua, to support our democratic mechanisms and play my part in maintaining our flourishing and healthy democratic community.

Noah Libson

Zionism
I've been a part of Noam since I was 10 and came on Shorashim Aleph. Noam has truly shaped who I am as a person, helping me discover my beliefs and allowing me to find my best friends. I wanted to be on the Va'ad T'nua partly because I love the movement so much, but also because I believe that in order to create a movement that works for all our members, no matter how old, it is really important to take any opportunity to help shape our movement and make it the best it can be. As well as that, going on Drachim made me really keen to work on the Zionism branch of Noam, and ensure that we are constantly reevaluating our Zionist ideals as a movement, and fulfilling our goals.

When I came on Noam this summer, I wasn’t expecting to find a place as I had done in previous years. I felt I had changed a lot since going to university, and I didn’t feel a connection to Noam quite as strongly as I used to. It wasn’t far into pre-camp before I started to feel a different kind of Noam connection. Compared to previous camps, I felt that I was able to have a much greater effect on how camp ran. This led me to think about how I could help shape our movement on a larger scale, and what I could do for Noam when I wasn’t on camp. I was delighted to be elected, and I will make every effort this year to support the Mazkirut and all of Noam in any way I can, so that everyone who comes on camp can benefit from Noam in the same way that I have.
