Welcome to Habonim Dror UK

Welcome to Habonim Dror, a Socialist Zionist Culturally Jewish youth movement. Through a progressive lens we create a culture and educate based on our worldly values of equality.

Habonim Dror has been pioneering the future of the Jewish people for over 90 years internationally and is continuing to do so in a fun and engaging way. We do this through weekly activities, residential weekends, Day-Schemes, Israel programs and Summer Camp.

Summer Camp

Here at Habo Dror, we are proud to run the greatest Jewish Summer Camp in the UK! Recommended by 98% of past participants – there’s a reason why everyone says that a Habo summer is the best summer!

This section could be used to say a little more about specifically what Habo in the UK does. It’s also a good placeholder section, allowing text to be easily updated, depending on what is important at any given time. It would almost certainly have a link to the detailed ‘about Habo’ page.

The section to the right (or below if you’re viewing on a mobile device) is also easily ‘updatable’ – it is basically a series of images, each of which is capable of being linked to another page, section or external URL.

This was the original approach we used – with a sliding image on the right and static text to the side of it. If you wanted to retain this area, you could – or we could hide it.

London Weekend – Yrs 5&6

This paste represents the cement that we used to build the pyramids, and this salt water is the tears of the Jews. And you have to eat it.” …
