Since the lockdown began in March, we have realised more and more the necessity to move online.
Thankfully, the chaverim of Habonim have been able to adapt and implement various initiatives to help keep our members busy and up to date with current affairs.
Our Rosh Bogrim and Rosh Channichim have been compiling newsletters, one aimed at bogrim and another for channichim, consisting of articles written by current or past members of HDSA, current affairs happening in South Africa and Israel and games to keep you busy at home.
Our Rosh Bogrim swiftly adapted to the online platform through hosting weekly meetings over Zoom since the lockdown began. These have consisted of educational debates around current issues in the world or simply an evening of kef.
Various educational resources have been compiled and shared to our community. These included a document which provided resources on becoming educated about the Black Lives Matter movement and videos regarding LGBTQIA+ pride.
Our Rosh Channichim have been helping all our madrichim host reunions, peulot and fun evenings on Zoom with our channichim. Our annual April seminar couldn’t take place so our two Roshim for the April seminar moved this online to make sure our chaverim will still receive the same education.
Moving online has not been easy but we have been lucky enough to adapt quickly in order to keep our chaverim engaged!
