DVAR HAMAZKIR
To all Movement members throughout the Habo world. To those of you from Tukoman, London, Ann Arbor,
Vancouver, Cape Town, Melbourne, Rio, Marseille, Amsterdam, Mexico City, Frankfurt, Montevideo and also
Haifa, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Kibbutz Yizre'el, Hatzerim and Revivim .... and many other places.
Many Chaggim have passed since I began my tafkid and, as is the case with our Jewish calendar, there have
been many opportunities to consider the world we live in. This is not a new experience for me as such is the
nature of the rhythm of Jewish time, but what is new for me, is that I have done this as the Mazkir of World
Habonim Dror and therefore have been dealing with certain issues which have moved to the forefront of my
consciousness.
So, I want to think out loud with you now, as there is no time more appropriate for this than the Chag fast
approaching, Pesach. On Pesach we got up and left. We began a fascinating Journey filled both with
significant dangers and extraordinarily powerful experiences. A Journey which formed the foundation of our
identity as a People, for good and for bad; a foundation whose echoes continued through the centuries until
these very days: "We were Slaves in Egypt, Let My People Go, Free People"; what power is still contained
within these phrases thousands of years later? What demands continue to be made of us generations later? A
Journey which takes us via the great moment at Sinai (whether it happened or not - we have not forgotten you
Shulamit Aloni), Amalek (who could forget you guys!), Mt Nebo (the place I recommend more than any other to
read from the Torah if you, like me, are moved by the emotional depth of our sources - Moses, how could
you?).
We too, members of the Movement, need to be on a Journey such as this. To be in a Movement means, literally,
to be on a journey towards something, to struggle with that which already exists, to climb the mountain of
responsibility because, if we do not, someone else will take responsibility and create something very
different from what we wish to see created.
Let us decide, all of us, that on this Pesach we will not go looking for Chametz, but rather for the
"Promised Land"; and lets agree, that if we find that the "Promised Land" is not exactly what we hoped it
would be, we will not give up on it; let us not live only with the view from Mt Nebo or with the stories told
to us by the Spies; let us rather Go Up and Build, in a diversity of ways; let us recognize for many the
power of group action and the need for individual creativity for others. Let us celebrate the songs of the
self and the chorus' of the choir (‫)שירי היחיד והיחד‬, all of us as members of Dror Habonim.
Chag Sameach,
Julian
DVAR HAMAZKIR
A todos los javerim y javerot de todo el mundo. Ustedes se encuentran en Tucumán, Londres, Ann Arbor,
Vancouver, Cape Town, Melbourne, Rio de Janeiro, Marsella, Ámsterdam, Ciudad de México, Frankfurt, Montevideo
y también Jersualem, Tel Aviv, Izra´el, Hatzerim, Revivim y muchos otros lugares.
!
Desde que asumí el cargo, hubo una gran cantidad de fiestas y junto a ellas, porque esa es la
naturaleza del calendario judío, se presentan muchas oportunidades para reflexionar sobre el significado de la
vida. Estas circunstancias nos permiten todo año pero especialmente, este año me toca a mí reflexionar por
primera vez como Mazkir Olami de Habonim Dror y esto me lleva a pensar sobre temas que no traté con similar
intensidad en los últimos años.
!
Me gustaría por un momento reflexionar juntos a ustedes, porque no hay otro período más adecuado que
Pesaj. En Pesaj nos levantamos y salimos. Comenzamos una travesía fascinante que incluía muchos peligros y
experiencias muy fuertes. Esta travesía diseñó nuestra identidad como pueblo para bien o para mal, y de aquí
ésta frase que escuchamos hoy en día: "Nosotros éramos esclavos, dejarlo ir, los hombres libres", ¿Qué
fortalezas tienen estas palabras?, ¿Qué requisitos llegarán a través de las generaciones hacia nosotros? Este
viaje nos lleva a través del Sinaí (fue o no lo fue, los importante es que estuvimos allí - verdad Shulamit,
no nos olvidamos de ti), Amalec (quién puede olvidar de ustedes!), El Monte Nebó (el lugar que yo más
recomiendo en la lectura del tanaj si ustedes como yo se emocionan de nuestras profundas fuentes emocionales cómo pudo Moisés)?.
Nosotros también hoy, javerim y javerot de nuestra tnuá, debemos ser parte de este tipo de travesías. Estar en
la tnua es literalmente: avanzar hacia el pasado, luchar con lo que hay, subir la montaña porque si nosotros
no tomamos la responsabilidad, la tomarán otros hacia caminos que no querríamos llegar.
Decidamos todos y todas en conjunto en esta festividad de pesaj que buscaremos con toda nuestra fuerza no el
hametz, sino nuestra tierra prometida. Pongámonos de acuerdo que hay una gran probabilidad que lo que
encontremos no será lo que nos guste completamente sin embargo, no renunciaremos a él. No se conforme con la
vista de la Montaña Nebó rápidamente ni con la historia de espionaje, sino que subiremos y nos realizaremos en
una variedad de caminos para que reconozcamos la fuerza del trabajo en conjunto, también por la necesidad de
algunos de nosotros para crear individuo. Celebraremos con las canciones en forma conjunta todos los miembros
de Habonim Dror.
Feliz Pesaj,
Julian

HD EUROPE LEADERSHIP
SEMINAR 2014
'We Jews are a community based on
memory. A common memory has kept
us together and enabled us to
survive… one generation passed on
to the next a memory which gained in
scope… This expanding memory was
more than a spiritual motif; it was a
power which sustained, fed, and
quickened Jewish existence itself.'

Jamie (HD United Kingdom)
Hi I'm Jamie from Habonim Dror United Kingdom. The seminar
in Brussels was an incredible experience to be a part of; I'm not
sure whether my highlight was HD Europe Mifkad at the amazing
Brussels Ken, or perhaps the treasure hunt around Brussels City.
Either way the seminar contained all the necessary ingredients for a
really exciting and really inspiring two days with our European Habo
family in a beautiful city. HDUK is extremely keen in fostering the
existing relations with our European counterparts and are actively
looking for ways to combine our movements with Machanot or
Siyurim around Europe. Allez L'Habonim!

Jeremy Baron (HD Belgium)
Bonjour à tous,
Je m'appelle Jeremy Baron, je suis le maskir de l'Habonim
Dror Belgique. Ce fut un honneur pour moi et pour la tzevet
madrihim de Bruxelles de pouvoir accueillir le deuxième séminaire
Europe dans notre Ken. Je tiens donc à remercier tous les
membres de l'Habonim Dror pour avoir pu organiser cet
événement incroyable! Bien entendu, je remercie également
l'HDUK, l'HDNL et l'HDFR
En ce qui me concerne et je crois parler au nom de l'HD
Belgique, ce séminaire nous a permis d'apprendre d'avantages
sur les pratiques et les idées des autres Habonim Dror d'Europe,
mais aussi cela nous a permis de changer notre visions de
l'Habonim Dror. Avant le séminaire nous étions chacun de notre
côté, chacun dans notre pays, mais à partir de maintenant nous
formons l'Habonim Dror Europe! Et c'est pour ça que je trouve ce
séminaire fantastique.
Ale Veagshem !
Itay Garmy (HD Holland)
Hee,
Ik ben Itay Garmy uit Haboniem-Dror Nederland. Twee weken geleden
zijn we met het maziroet op een seminar in Brussel geweest van Haboniem
Olami. Tijdens het seminar leerden we alle Haboniem landen uit Europa
kennen. We gingen met elkaar overleggen en kijken hoe we Haboniem in
onze eigen thuisland kunnen verbeteren. Daarnaast gingen we met
zijn allen verhalen uitwisselen en kijken hoe elke Haboniem land zijn
idealen nastreeft.
Voor mij persoonlijk was het seminar in een woord fantastisch.
Brussel is een hele indrukwekkende stad en om op zo een plek
allemaal mensen te ontmoeten die hetzelfde met jou gemeen
hebben is heel interessant. Ik heb veel nieuwe dingen geleerd die
ik straks kan toepassen op Haboniem Nederland zoals de mifkad
van de Belgen tijdens elke afdeling of ideeën van de Engelsen
omtrent Shnat. Elk land voegde wat anders en nieuws toe en dat
maakte het seminar heel speciaal.
Haboniem Nederland kan ontzettend veel leren van Haboniem Europa
en er kan ook veel van ons geleerd worden. Het is aan HDN om te zorgen
dat we een leidende rol nemen binnen Europa en zorgen dat we uitgroeien
tot de grootste en levendste jeugdbeweging die er bestaat!
Aleh VeHagshem!

Benjamin Zeitoun (HD France – Paris)
Shalom!!
Je voudrais commencer par remercier tout ceux qui ont contribué à l'organisation
de ce deuxième séminaire.
La rencontre des différents locaux nous a montré à quel point nous pouvons être
si différents mais pourtant si proches parce que tous réunis sous la bannière d'un
même mouvement, l'Habonim Dror.
Le Dror qui illustre encore une fois ici sa capacité à rapprocher les gens de
manière naturelle, familiale. Il nous montre aussi que le peuple juif est, et restera
un peuple soudé, regardant dans la même direction : Jérusalem.
L’État d'Israël a été l'objet de nombreuses activités, j'ai vite compris que nous
avons des visions différentes, des analyses et des critiques plus ou moins fortes à
son égard.
Nous nous sommes toutefois mis d'accord notamment sur le travail que nous
devons accomplir en tant que juif de diaspora pour que celui-ci soit reconnu à sa
juste valeur ou encore sur l'importance de l'Alyah dans les communautés juives.
Communautés juives qui se remettent fondamentalement en question aujourd'hui en lien avec les actualités plus ou moins
brulantes que nous vivons en Europe.
Nous remercions très chaleureusement la maman d'Arnaud Goldberg, siégeant au Parlement européen, qui nous a fait
l'honneur de nous rendre visite pour nous parler de toutes ces thématiques, ce fût une rencontre très enrichissante.
Concernant le Judaïsme, nous avons réussi à parler d'une même voix, constatant que notre judaïsme est celui de l'ouverture,
de la tolérance, de la volonté d'inclure un maximum de haverim afin de perpétuer nos traditions, nos valeurs, et notre histoire
commune en tant que juif.
Enfin, ce séminaire a été l'illustration de la communauté " Habonim Dror ".
Nous avons, à Paris, lancé comme beaucoup d'entre vous le savent déjà, un groupe facebook : " Habonim Dror's Couchsurfing
" qui vise à établir un réseau mondial afin de pouvoir se rencontrer et exploiter du mieux que l'on peut cette communauté, on tenait
à cet effet à vous remercier et à inviter ceux qui ne savaient pas à s'inscrire !
Ce n'est qu'un début, mais je constate que nous pouvons faire beaucoup si nous arrivons à nous rapprocher. Nous devons
resserrer les liens presque inexistants entre les différents locaux européens et mondiaux, cela peut nous être très bénéfique !
Le mélange des cultures, des traditions, des façons de penser, a toujours été un moteur dans l'histoire des peuples, alors
allons-y !
Ale Veagshem
Melanie (HD France – Marseille)
The seminar in Brussels was great! The meeting
between the countries was cool, we had a fantastic
Shabbat and we all had a lot of energy even after our 7am
flight delay!
This seminar allowed us each to understand the
different ways in which Habonim Dror operates worldwide.
We got inspired by all the ideas of people from different
countries and by the fact that so many Chaverim were
present on Saturday in Brussels!
Habonim Dror is my second family worldwide!!
See you soon!

with selections from "The Song of Songs", which we would read with
great relish, as erotic poetry. 'Thy belly is like an heap of wheat, set
about with lilies" ... heady stuff - perfect Spring fare for healthy
twenty-year-olds, through whose veins the hormone-rich blood was
racing joyfully. God the Deliverer of Israel was not mentioned - except,
oddly, in the ritual blessings which punctuate any Jewish ceremony,
for which we always stuck to the traditional formula "Blessed art Thou,
a Lord our God, King of the Universe ... " etc., etc. These pious words
always struck me as a bit incongruous, for such a godless bunch of
freethinkers as we were.
Our "Third Seder" took place during Hal Hamo'ed, a couple of
days later. For it, we wrote our own Passover Hagadah, a new one
every year. It was half paraphrase, half parody of the real thing.

Fazendo e vivendo história
-Richard Sihel
A grande maioria dos judeus sabe que o seder de pessach de uma casa é diferente da outra. Existem as casas que fazem o seder completo,
as que fazem só a parte antes da comida, as que só comem, as que fazem algumas rezas ou algumas canções. Há uma infinidade de estilos e
não tem como dizer que um é melhor do que o outro.
Sempre foi comum as tnuot fazerem encontros referentes ao judaismo como um Kabalat Shabat na sexta-feira de vez em
quando, contruir e fazer uma refeição na suca, um seder de pessach entre outros, mas nos ultimos anos algo nitidamente mudou. Não é mais
fazer um simples encontro judaico com modificações dos tradicionais para atrair pessoas e ser simplesmente agradavel. Esta crescendo um novo
estilo de judaismo, o cultural humanista. Essa linha que preza em trazer a história e a cultura trazendo pessoas para sedarim, muito além da “lei
divina”.
Neste ano, o Habonim Dror Brasil declarou que estamos vivendo o ano do Judaismo Cultural Humanista e com isso estamos
nos esforçando para melhorar os nossos marcos judaicos para ficarem cada vez mais com a nossa cara. A ideia é que da mesma maneira que os
ortodoxos, os reformista, os conservadores e todos os outros tem a sua maneira já mais consolidada de praticar o seu judaismo, nós estamos
criando o nosso jeito de seguir o que acreditamos e provavelmente não será algo regrado e sim sugestões e ideias de como realizar esses
marcos, prezando pela individualidade e produção cultural de cada um.
A festividade de pessach sempre foi especial para o nosso povo e para nós do Habonim Dror não é diferente. Normalmente o
seder cultural humanista, que é feito antes dos sedarim das casas de cada um, é um dos grandes eventos do ano para os snifim que o realizam,
unindo cada vez mais pessoas que sabem que cada ano é diferente do outro e sempre vão para descobrir “o que esta noite tem de diferente de
todas as outras”.

Pesach is the best informal education pe'ula the Jewish people have. From singing songs, eating not so tasty
stuff to just telling stories that have at their center who we are and who we want to be, it's all there. Tonight at the seder we'll learn about the
redemption of the Jewish people, from the hands of other to a freedom of self-determination and choice. Once a year we come together and
remind ourselves that once we were slaves onto Pharao. Today we do not have a man with a whip standing over us, but let us take the time at
the seder challenge ourselves with what is enslaving us today, and how we can remain a free people.
We wish you all a happy Pesach, one filled with meaning, partnership, love and happiness.
