About Us

Who Are We

We are a Jewish Zionist Youth Movement that has been operating since 1930.

Habonim Dror Southern Africa (HDSA) operates in 2 major Kenim (centers) – Johannesburg and Cape Town. We aim to educate Jewish Southern African youth on Zionism, Judaism and concerns of Humanity. We aim to inspire Jewish Southern African youth to prioritise and actualise Judaism, Zionism and Service to Humanity in their lives, whilst living out the values of tolerance, peace, equality, freedom, respect and human rights.

With a focus on informal education, Judaism, Zionism and leadership building, the movement is constantly running events for its chaverim. These events range from weekly meetings to mini-machanot over weekends to Israel tours and programmes.
