The contribution to the israeli society


Hanoar Hatzioni founded a network of educational institutes with boarding schools, in which thousands of young people from Israel and the diaspora are educated. These institutes are co-owned by the movement, maintain contacts and collaboration with the Ministry of Education.  The Institutions are:

  • Nevé Hadassa- Located in the Sharón, next to the Kibbutz Tel Itzjak.
  • Javat Hanoar Hatzioni – (In homage to Israel Goldstein) in Jerusalem.
  • Alonei Itzjak – neighbor to Kibbutz Kfar Glikson
  • Educational Center in memory of Dr. Monssenson – in Magdiel.


Kibbutzim & Moshavim

Our chaverim founded kibbutzim and moshavim throughout Israel. The kibbutzim of Hanoar Hatzioni are: Usha, Hasolelim, Kfar Glikson, Tel Itzjak, Nitzanim and Ein Hashlosha.


In the 1960s, members of Hanoar Hatzioni and Akiva founded the “Massuah” International Center for Holocaust Studies, which is located to this day in the Tel Itzjak kibbutz.

His focus is on youth movements during shoa. Massuha is where the Hanoar Hatzioni world archive is located, in which dozens of years of ideological educational activities are documented.

It is the organization that supports young people who decided to immigrate to Israel. We accompany, assist and advise our olim in their absorption process during the first months in Israel.

In order to achieve this goal, we have established four supportive arrays, each one of them relates to a particular stage in the process of Aliya and absorption of the Oleh, but all of which are synchronized under the same project:

  • Before Aliya: The Shlichim and Pehilim staff, together with members of the Mazkirut Olamit, will guide the Olim on options for immigration, and help them get answers to their questions. 
  • Soldierity: The Mazkirut Olamit, together with Bogrim of the Tnua, who have undergone military service, will take care of guiding the Olim with all issues related to recruitment to the IDF.
  • Olimkedin: This initiative is intended for anyone looking for opportunities for professional development in the workforce.
  • Scopus Israel: This initiative constitutes a network of Bogrim of the Tnua in Israel and is in fact the main social framework of the Olim.


It is the central decision-making body within the organization. This is in charge of managing the general and strategic affairs of the institution to guarantee its correct operation, development and improvement, based on the strictest rules of transparency, openness and security. It is made up of the general director, the treasurer, the organizational adviser and the coordinators of the departments of “education,” logistics “,” Europe and North America “,” Latin America “,” Programs in Israel “,” Shnat Hajshara Tnuatit ”,“ MASA Programs ”,“ Communication ”and their Shijlim.

Mazkirut Olamit is an NGO, recognized by the State of Israel and by National Institutions. Its president is Joel Montvelisky.


Due the responsibility that we have as a youth educational movement towards the Jewish and Zionist education of the youth of the diaspora, we assume the commitment to activate together with other Tnuot that share our essential foundations of Judaism and Zionism as ideological dimensions, together with the fact be supportive. This supported the creation of the Hanoar Hatzioni family. This family is made up of our kenim around the world and by those we have named “Sister Tnuot” .
