Happy 80th Birthday!

Hachnasat Sefer Torah

Sunday 2nd June


Bnei Akiva is commissioning a brand new Sefer Torah to commemorate our 80th birthday! This Torah will be used on our Summer and Winter Machanot, and Shabbatonim throughout the year. We would like to invite everyone in the tnua to donate a word, a Pasuk or more!

Bachad Fundraising Campaign

£80k for 80 Years

Each year Friends of Bnei Akiva (Bachad) has running costs of approximately £80,000. This covers our bursary scheme allowing everyone to attend Bnei Akiva activities regardless of financial constraints.

This year we are asking our Tnua to sign up for a standing order to Bachad of £80 a year (£6.66 per month). Our target is to find 1000 of our exceptional alumni and chaverim to sign up, and therefore ensure the long term sustainability of Bachad.

This is a huge challenge, but the positive impact it will have on Bnei Akiva and Bachad will be long lasting and significant. Donate today by clicking on the link below
