Habonim Dror (הבונים דרור) is a Jewish, Socialist-Zionist youth movement that operates in North America, as well as around the world. Our aims are to build a personal bond and commitment between North American Jewish youth and the State of Israel, and create Jewish leaders who will actualize the principles of social justice, equality, peace, and coexistence in Israel and in North America.
