There are two events happening back-to-back in Israel over 18-24 October 2020. The first is Kaleidoscope (18-22 October 2020), followed by HUG (23-24 October 2020).

Visit our early registration page in order to register for either/both events!  We have separate underlying registration pages for International, South Africans and Israelis.

HABO2020 will be based at Yearim Hotel at Kibbutz Maaleh Hachamisha near Jerusalem.  For more about the hotel see

Registrations are open for Internationals,     S Africans and Israelis as well. Kaleidoscope-HUG 2020 will be based at Yearim, Kibbutz Maaleh Hachamisha near Jerusalem from Sunday October 18, 2020 9 am (after breakfast) through Saturday night October 24 (after dinner). Price of USD 1950 per person includes accommodation, meals, transportation on private chartered bus, and all program costs.  Price does not include flights or airport transfers.  All accommodation is per person based on double occupancy (a single supplement will be available for a limited number of rooms). 

The two-day HUG event is $210 per person based on double occupancy including one night hotel, meals and starting 11:00 am on Friday 23rd Oct – ending when Shabbat goes out on the 24th.

We have limited time (October 15th) special deal where the first 30 South Africans to sign up and pay a deposit receive a $950 discount (from standard $1,950)  .

We have received donations and also negotiated a very special discount for South Africans attending HABO2020 .

The cost of USD 1,950 per person in double occupancy covers all expenses (except perhaps your occasional meal, tips and extra expenses that you choose to make.) A single supplement will be available for a limited number of rooms.

The hotel – starting from Sunday 18th to Saturday 24th after Shabbat is included.

The majority of the meals are included.( At this point we think it will include all meals, but cannot discount the possibility that the group will decide to branch out on their own for occasional meals.)

All transport, hotels, entrance fees, guides and sessions are included.

Your travel to Israel and home,  and your comprehensive insurance policy is not included.

Habonim Ultimate Gathering (HUG) costs $210 per person in double room occupancy covering Friday and Saturday 23-24th Oct – all meals and activities.  There is no additional charge for those who pay for the full HABO2020 week 18-24th October.

Both HUG and Kaleido will be fully Kosher and HUG will accomodate Shomrei Shabbat

We expect and encourage many non-Habo spouses/partners, as well as adult children, to attend Kaleidoscope and HUG.  Although we are not currently planning to have facilities/programs for younger children at either Kaleidoscope or HUG, we may explore possible options to accommodate them if there is sufficient demand.”
