who are we?

Habonim Dror is a Jewish, Socialist-Zionist youth movement that operates throughout Australia, as well as around the world. Our aim is to enrich the Jewish identities and create an engagement with Israel for the youth in our community. Through critically analysing the world around us, we strive to empower the youth, providing them the with ability to develop a meaningful Jewish identity that exists in all spheres of life, which is to be used to improve oneself, the Jewish people and the wider world. The unique atmosphere created in the movement has ensured we are one of the largest Jewish youth organisations in Australia.

Our modus operandi revolves primarily around informal education. We seek to create an environment in which our chanichim can grapple with the core values of Habonim Dror on both an intellectual and experiential level. This manifests through weekly programs in our kenim (branches) in each city, frequent machanot (camps), community involvement and culminates in the ultimate Habonim Dror experience – Shnat Hachshara ve Hadracha.
