Habonim Dror activity

The Shorashim group on tour in Israel

June/July was choc-a-bloc with activity for Habonim Dror. 

We returned to Israel with our cohort of high-schoolers on our first Shorashim (Roots) programme since 2019! Our channichim enjoyed falafel, good times, and engaging peulot over the length and breadth of Eretz Yisrael. 

In other overseas news, we had the privilege of sending a delegation of some of our most experienced madrichim to assist with a Jewish Machaneh in Hungary — Camp Hallelujah. It was an amazing opportunity that allowed us to reach Jewish communities, and experience places we may otherwise not have had the opportunity to visit.

Back in SA, our channichim enjoyed Winter Camps in both Johannesburg and on our campsite in Onrus. In Johannesburg, channies had fun-filled days with exciting tiyulim, enjoying the Sterkfontein Caves and the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre where they had a chance to engage their inquisitive sides. Joburg Winter Camp rounded off with an epic bowling game and an unforgettable sleepover at the bayit. 

Back in Onrus, the last days of the holidays were spent in the best way possible — on the campsite, engaging in peulot, hanging out with friends and enjoying the Habo magic complete with an awesome concert under the stars. 

Following immediately after Winter Camp was Bogrim Seminar (BogSem). Held on the campsite on the last weekend before the end of university holidays, BogSem helped re-energise the bogrim body, and acted as a vital space for important hadracha training between our younger and experienced bogrim. 

June/July 2022 will not be forgotten. We hope this momentum only grows in the coming months!
