The World Bnei Akiva World Council was established in 2015 as part of a process of evaluation and renewal of the governance of our movement.
In order to deepen our connection with the Bnei Akiva branches around the world we created a World Council, which includes representatives from the snifim and serves as the highest decision-making body of the world movement.
The council consists of 16 members who have significant experience and knowledge of the world of Bnei Akiva, such as former Shlichim and Mazkirim. One important element is having a representative from each major region or country; Europe, UK, France, South America, North America, Australia and South Africa.
All members are chosen by the organizations they represent. The World Council works on determining policy for the movement, approving the budget and raising funds. It meets every few months for a conference call and twice a year for a face-to-face meeting.
As part of the movement’s renewal we are focusing on a number of core projects which we intend to progress with in 2019 and beyond.
