Ken Ha'Shemesh Ha'Olah

About the Ken

Welcome to Ken Ha'Shemesh Ha'Olah! This ken (branch) aims to bring Habonim Dror’s activities and values to Australian Jewish youth who live in communities outside of our other branches in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.


"Habo will be a lifeline for many Jewish youth over the coming months. For us outside of the major cities with large Jewish population, Habo offers an awesome and fun way for your kids to stay connected to other Jewish kids." - Debi Grossman (Parent of Junior Chanichot) 

We aim to do this through online peulot (activities), organising activities/events in other communities, and helping to bring people to our winter and summer camps and leadership seminars.

Habonim Dror Camps 2020

Each year all of our three kenim, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, run both a summer and winter camp for kids in years 3-11. Our federal camp - or fed for short - sees senior chanichim from across Australia coming for 12 days of Jewish, Zionist and experiential learning. Or, as the chanichim call it: heaps of fun! Despite the distance, we will find a way for you to join us!
