Bnei Akiva inspires and empowers young Jews with a sense of commitment to the Jewish people, the Land of Israel and the Torah.


For more than 80 years, Hachshara, a year trip to Israel, has played a part in shaping and training the future leaders of Bnei Akiva and Jewish communities around the world.


Hachshara is a vital component in your Bnei Akiva journey, when you can devote time to learning Jewish texts, develop independently and explore your identity.

The Kivun program is a life-changing, integrated gap-year experience with Bnei Akiva. Learn about yourself, Modern Orthodox Judaism and Religious Zionism through relevant and meaningful Torah study – focused on preparing you for real-life experiences.


Open for all globally

The Mechina Olamit is a six month program with students coming from Israel and abroad. The program delves into Israeli society and includes Jewish and academic studies, hikes and navigation courses, independence and social involvement.



For girls only

The core of the SHALEM program is Sherut Leumi (National service). On this program you will be part of the nationwide “Bat Ami” organization, which takes care of thousands of Israeli girls helping them through their year of giving back to Israeli society.
