New center for Bnei Akiva in Armon Hanatziv

About 120 members from the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood will return to activities in their new home.


Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion, today inaugurated the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood Bnei Akiva branch. The ceremony took place this evening (Tuesday) in the Hillel Hemed Experimental School.

The Jerusalem Municipality, which works to arrange buildings for youth club activities and youth movement branches throughout the city, has recently completed renovating structures which until now were used as storage rooms in the school yard.

In addition to activity rooms for the branch, a building has been allocated to serve as a prayer hall for members visiting the branch.

There are five structures in the school yard - a central conference hall, toilets, a kitchen and a storage room - covering a total of about 250 square meters.

Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion: “Last week we inaugurated a new Bnei Akiva movement branch in the Har Homa neighborhood, and today I am proud to once again be inaugurating a new Bnei Akiva branch here in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood. This branch will serve about 120 youths as a home and a center for a variety of activities, including providing assistance to residents of the neighborhood and the entire city.”

Jerusalem Deputy Mayor and Chairman of HaBayit HaYehudi Hagit Moshe: “The religious community in Armon Hanatziv is one of the city’s oldest communities, and the neighborhood’s Bnei Akiva branch is an important social center for its residents. I thank fellow HaBayit HaYehudi member Guri Freudiger and the Mayor for their efforts in renewing the branch building and allowing the neighborhood’s young people to have the most supportive place possible.”

Bnei Akiva Secretary General Yair Shahal: “After having inaugurated a new branch in Har Homa last week, this evening we are inaugurating another new branch in Armon Hanatziv. The movement is growing every year, and the Jerusalem district is growing and expanding. Now, with the opening of Organization Month and the pinnacle of movement events, members are getting their own branch and will be able to fully and properly conduct the activities. We thank the Jerusalem Municipality, Mayor Moshe Lion, and Yehuda Freudiger, holder of the Youth Movements portfolio, for their work and assistance throughout the entire process, and are already preparing to open new branches as needed.”
