The Federation of Zionist Youth (FZY) is the largest pluralist Zionist youth movement in the United Kingdom.
FZY aims to create young leaders with a passion for Israel and their Jewish identity. Our ideology is shaped by Zionism and is expressed through FZY’s four aims: Tzedakah (acts of righteousness), Tarbut (Jewish, culture), Magen (defence of Jewish rights) and Aliyah Nimshechet (moving to Israel and living out our ideology). Our ultimate vision is of a united Jewish people living in the land of Israel in peace and as a light unto the nations.
At FZY, we strive to challenge, stimulate, educate and excite British Jewish youth with imaginative peer-led activity on a weekly basis, and highly successful summer camps, winter programmes and seminars throughout the year. Every year, FZY sends almost 500 young people to Israel on our famous Israel Tour, and trains up the next generation of communal leaders on our life-changing Year Course programme.
“FZY is excited to join the UK Task Force and is committed to a vision of a democratic Jewish state living in peace. We are excited to be part of this cross-communal body and explore these complex issues in a responsible and constructive way.”
