Habonim Dror believes in a socialism based on the values of equality, social justice, collectivism, peace and democracy, and educates its chaverimot (members) towards contributing to a society and living a life based on these values in Israel. Habonim Dror asserts that the practice of socialism – combining elements of common ownership, democracy, access to resources and the understanding of collective responsibility is essential for the equality of all people. Consistent with our ideology, Habonim Dror believes that qualified program applicants should not be excluded from participation due to an inability to pay. We have a supportive alumni organization that raise funds to subsidize the high cost of programs and to provide scholarships.
In addition to local sources and the Amy Adina Schulman Fund, program participants can apply here for scholarships from the Habonim Dror national office. Our largest scholarships typically cover around 10% of the tuition cost. Please contact Bekah Diamond-Bier at if you have any questions.
