There are currently four snifim in Australia; one in Perth, one in Melbourne, and two in Sydney (in both Bondi and Maroubra). The Melbourne snif is the largest branch of Bnei Akiva in the world, Israel aside. Bnei Akiva has been active in Australia for many decades and many thousands of their bogrim have made Aliyah.
Programs are held on Saturday afternoons, and bi-annual camps are run for each state. Other initiatives include weekly learning, group volunteer days, and regular minyanim. There is a federal summer camp held in December attended by senior chanichim from all snifim in Australia and New Zealand. Bnei Akiva Australia is a member of the Australasian Zionist Youth Council (AZYC).
We have shlichim in:
Perth, Western Territory
Sydney, New South Wales
World Bnei Akiva contact person for Australia is Yonatan Sinclair.
