Svivot (local branches) are the lifeblood of Bnei Akiva. They meet in numerous locations across the United Kingdom weekly. Every Shabbat hundreds of chanichim (young members) take part in activities, have fun with their friends and learn about the topic of the week. Svivot allow chanichim to have fun in a safe environment with their peers whilst also learning about Israel and Judaism. As a Religious Zionist, Modern Orthodox youth movement,our ideology of Torah, Avodah and Aliyah are at the forefront of everything Bnei Akiva does and Svivot are no exception.
Our madrichim (leaders) are DBS checked and trained to look after the welfare of the chanichim. They are also given extensive training in hadracha (leadership skills) ensuring the Svivot experience is of the highest quality. This also allows our madrichim to learn new skills, empowering and inspiring Jewish youth.
