Amazing Summer 2021

Dear Chaverim*ot!

With the starting of a new and exciting year of Hashomer Hatzair, we are happy to share with you the experiences we went through this last summer and our plans for the coming year.

So what did we do this summer?

Summer Machane

At the beginning of the summer, we traveled with all the kids to Döbriach for a week of camping full of activities, swimming in the lake, nature hikes and many wonderful experiences.

European Seminar in Austria

This year we hosted here in Austria the whole European movement for a joint seminar, we met together with 200 shomrim*ot from 11 different countries and talked about topics like hadracha skills, our values and ideology and their meaning today. At the end of the seminar we voted and reached decisions at the European level regarding the nature of our movement for the coming years.

Machane Israel

This year, due to all the difficulties, the official Machane on behalf of the world movement was canceled. Despite this challenge we decided not to give up and to insist on a trip to Israel, at least for us. so with the help of the world movement, different government ministries and the Jewish Agency we managed to obtain a special visa and be the only country from Europe to make this trip come true!

In Israel we explored around the country - we visited Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the north and the desert. We met with representatives from the Arab and Bedouin society, we learned and discussed about the problems and challenges in Israel and most of all we got a lot of very exciting and empowering experiences.
