Habonim — Where in the world?

A Shnupdate from the HDSA Shnatties!

The Shnatties on Kibbutz Revivim after their world seminar, in which they engaged with Habonim from all over the world: Brad Gottschalk, Ruby Roux, Joe Mendelowitz, Jake Bonner, Sasha Rodenacker, Tal Peretz, Gina Levy and Daniel Rome

Hagshama! What does it mean? How does one pursue it? Can one ever accomplish it, or is it a continuous pursuit?

These questions have been ever-present as we progress through the various stages of our Shnat year. A year which began with a fascinating SA seminar. Here, we explored our responsibility of service to both the broader and Jewish South African communities.

Thereafter, we arrived at Kibbutz Revivim in the Negev. Kibbutz challenged our labour Zionist roots and our preconceived ideas of Chalutzic aliyah. Currently, we are engaged in independent living in a Shitufic style and volunteering in our community in Shapira. This aids us to contend with a modern interpretation of chalutziyot. We have been having wonderful and enriching experiences.

The year has a healthy balance between education and fun that has allowed us to grow and develop as people. We highly recommend Shnat as a year to explore who you are and what you believe in, in a nurturing, yet challenging environment.
