2017 is going to be a big year for the Auckland ken, which by the way is the biggest Jewish youth movement centre in New Zealand. With three of our current first year leaders back from Shnat Hachshara (year of preparation) and many other older Madrichimot (leaders) involved in the running of the ken, we are sure to be bringing fresh content and interesting ideas to all our Chanichimot, every week.

Our Sunday meetings are based on a Tochnit written by the rosh Chinuch of HDANZ. The Tochnit focuses on specific areas of our ideology to educate towards. We educate informally on such things as; Hebrew language, Israel, Judaism, Socialism through fun games and activities!

We get very diverse, cool groups of Chanichimot each week ranging from years 1-12 and we always manage to have the best time! so no matter what, you know you can brighten up your Sundays by coming to Habo!

See you there

Shalom Chaverim!!

In 2015 change is in the air at the Wellington Ken. Longtime Habo Wellington stalwarts Sapeer Mayron and Tali Josephs will be taking a more of a behind the scenes approach to Wellington Ken life this year, with Sapeer and Tali both taking on other roles within the movement. We’d both like to publicly acknowledge the incredible work that Sapeer and Tali have done here in Wellington over the past three years, building up the Wellington Ken and facilitating the transition of the Moadon from Cuba to Webb Street. We hope to build on their fantastic legacy!

So who are we?

Individually, we’re known as Ella Fisher and Daniel Josephs respectively. Collectively, we’re known as Daniella (see what we did there?!!). And we’re super stoked to be leading the Wellington Ken this year!! Ella, a true Wellingtonian through and through, replete with her Doc Martens and knitted cardigan, has just returned from Shnat and is ridiculously excited to be Rosh Wellington Ken this year. Daniel, or DJ to those in the know (everyone in Habo), is a reluctant Aucklander but is making a homecoming of sorts, returning to his birthplace of Wellington and to his humble origins in the quaint, seaside city of P-Town (Porirua NOT Petone!!).

We are really looking forward to getting to know all of you Wellingtonians and to making 2015 another landmark year for Habo Wellington – we hope you can join us for the ride!!

Programs in 2015

  • Programs are being run every second Sunday from 12-1pm at our Moadon on Webb Street, Wellington. These programs are for everyone ages 8 and up.
  • We are also running monthly dinners especially for Senior (ages 15-19) on one Monday per month.

Aleh v’Hagshem,

Ella and Daniel.

Hey there!

My name is Hannah and I am Rosh Christchurch Ken for 2017 wohoo!
I am super pumped for all the great things 2017 will bring.

We have monthly Friday night dinners lined up for high school students, those in school years 9-13. These will consist of super yummy food and super cool banter. So don’t miss out! We also have a super fun super secret Facebook page, so if you are in high school, have Facebook, and are a Jew living in Christchurch don’t hesitate to contact me and get involved! If you are in school years 8 and below don’t worry we have exciting things happening for you too. During the year I will be running Peulot and other great activities for all ages. We are also hoping to run some messimot activities such as volunteering at a soup kitchen or making food to donate to the Salvation Army. I will be communicating these events mainly through email so I encourage all parents and chanichimot to get in contact with me so I can add you to the mailing list.
