Bnei akiva youth movement

The Bnei Akiva Zionist Youth Movement was established in the late 1960s and flourished until the late 1970s. It was the third largest of the youth movements in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and focused on a Religious Zionist approach to educating the youth.

Below is a gallery of pictures showing members of the movement through those years in various activities including weekly meetings and camps in both Rhodesia and South Africa.

Bnei Akiva was established on Lag BaOmer 1929 as the youth wing of the Mizrachi movement. Concurrent with the establishment of the movement in pre-independence Israel, organizations of religious youth operated in the Diaspora.In 1958, the Israeli and Diaspora groups merged to form the modern World Bnei Akiva, which operates both in and out of Israel for Diaspora youth, along with Bnei Akiva Israel, which operates in Israel for Israeli youth.
