What is Hashy?

Hashomer Hatzair Australia is a Socialist-Zionist, secular Jewish youth movement based in East St Kilda. Founded in 1953, we have proudly educated, impassioned and empowered Jewish youth for over 50 years. Our core aims are to help students to shape their communities and to find personal relevance in their Judaism, Jewish nationhood and Israel. We run activities on a weekly basis for children from grade 3 to year 12, as well as two week-long camps a year. We also run year-long Israel trips for school leavers. All in all, Hashy is a vibrant mix of informal education, fun, scouting, socialising, volunteering and much more.
