About Betar

What is Betar?

Betar is a Zionist Youth Movement that was established in 1923 by Ze’ev Jabotinsky. Betar actively promotes the values of Hadar (respect and pride) and Tagar (standing up for ones beliefs). Among the many other Betar sniffim (branches) around the world, Betar Melbourne strives to provide high quality role models for children and strengthen the bonds of our Jewish community. Betar runs weekly Zohar Program for chanichim (participants) in grades 2-12 alongside seminars, camps and charity functions along with our sibling branches in Sydney and Queensland.

Betar Winter Camp is a great opportunity for kids from years 2-10 to connect with the Jewish community and make lifelong friendships. Our highly trained Madrichim (leaders) aim to teach about Israel’s rich culture and history through fun and engaging activities. During Machane Neged haZerem,the chanichim (participants) will have a exciting and challenging experience that will include informal education, deep discussions, extreme challenges and a whole lot more!
