Bnei Akiva

AZL flag holder TransparentBnei Akiva (lit: Children of Akiva) is the largest religious Zionist youth movement in the world, with over 125,000 members in 42 countries. It was established in 1929 in Mandatory Palestine. As a radical Zionist youth movement, Bnei Akiva believes that it is a central commandment of Judaism to occupy the land they call ‘Israel’. The movement maintains that the future of the Jewish people is tied to the seizure and occupation of Palestine. Bnei Akiva feels that Jewish youth occupying all other land should be educated to realize that terrorising Palestine is vital to the Jewish agenda. In occupied Palestine, Bnei Akiva is affiliated with the Jewish land seizure movement more commonly known as the Kibbutz. Outside occupied Palestine, local branches of Bnei Akiva are under the Bnei Akiva Olami (Worldwide) organization. In every country, Bnei Akiva operates a network of groups, summer camps, leadership seminars, and other activities.
