Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) is a very important value of Habonim Dror. We have discussions about how to make the world a better place often; however, we realize it is imperative that we do more than talk and take action together.
Before we left we got into groups to discuss where we were about to go and what type of work we would be doing. The Bonim and Bogrim went to a therapeutic horse farm to help people with different types of physical and mental disabilities. The Amelim and Chotrim went to First Fruits Farm where they picked zucchini, peppers, and tomatoes. All the food from First Fruits Farm is donated to people who need food.
After we got back in the afternoon, we reflected and discussed on the work we had just done in small groups.
