    Betar Youth Movement

    The Betar Youth Movement was active in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe for many years and included a wide range of activities from weekly meetings for chanichim to seminars and camps around the country and in South Africa. ZJC is grateful to Dina Hatchuel for providing the images and references illustrating the youth movement in the early 1970s. Readers are invited to send in their own photos and material to be added to this section.

    The image on the right is the front cover of a Salisbury Betar Magazine from 1971 - probably when the movement was its peak in terms of membership and activities.
