HABO 2020 in 2022 – Engaging in Israel…… Really!
The Covid-19 pandemic forced us to delay our plans for HABO 2020. HED (Habonim Engaging in Dialogue) stepped in to create a virtual platform for Movement Alumni throughout the world to connect and engage during these challenging times. From our Zoom windows and across four continents, we managed to re-live the Habonim Dror magic and experience. Spending this time together solidified for all of us how our experience in the Movement helped shape and direct our lives.
Kaleidoscope and HUG in October 2022, will allow us to continue to connect and engage, this time in Israel and in person. It will provide an opportunity for current and past members of Habonim Dror, throughout the world and from Israel to finally meet face to face. During an action filled and thought-provoking week of touring and programming we will have the unique opportunity to see and re-acquaint ourselves with old friends, madrichim and chanichim.
What can we expect from HABO 2020 in 2022?
An Amazing Journey
Kaleidoscope is a deep and nuanced educational journey of discovery and disruption in the informal, experiential style of Habonim Dror.
An Inside View of Israel
Kaleidoscope will offer a view of Israel from the inside with a diverse array of programs and speakers, encouraging participants to engage critically and creatively with a wide range of perspectives and opinions.
