Habonim Dror Aotearoa New Zealand is a Jewish youth organisation run by young adults for children from school years 3 – 13. We run programs around a variety of topics with the goal of providing a basic Jewish education for children. Habonim Dror NZ runs bi-annual camps during the July and January school holidays. These are the highlight of the Habonim year and members from all across the country come together for this social and educational experience.
Habonim Dror also runs a programme enabling our recent high school graduates to go to Israel for a ten month Shnat Hachshara leadership course. On this programme, participants further their Jewish education, meet other Jews from around the world, and receive leadership training to become quality leaders when they return to New Zealand.
