Habonim Machaneh Idan Ha’Pliaa is here! 

We’re so excited to launch Machaneh from the 10th to the 27th of December. 

Machaneh last year felt like a pivotal moment in the history of Habonim Dror. After two years without our most significant programme, being able to run Macheneh felt both a relief and a privilege. Relief as Habonim Dror cannot exist without the programme which defines the lives of people within the movement, both channichim and madrichim. Core memories and future leaders are made within the three weeks in December, and so to continue the legacy of Habonim Dror would be implausible without Machaneh. Dually, it felt like an absolute privilege. Everyone who contributed to Machaneh 2022 felt the joy of seeing months of hard work put into action by seeing hundreds of kids roaming the campsite. This year, the Era of Wonder, everyone contributing will hold on to that feeling of joy from last year to put on an elevated experience in the utopia of the Onrus campsite.

For those who have been on Habonim Machaneh before, you know the feeling of Habo Magic. For those who have never been, take out three weeks of your life to experience a turning point in your life. The feeling of Machaneh is something out of the realm of the normal world. It’s unexplainable, it’s unmissable, it feels like both your whole life and just a few seconds packed within three weeks. 

See you in December and you can find the signup link on our instagram: @habonimsa

Aleh Ve’Hagshem!
