Message from Stanely Lewis in London " I received the notification of Habonim in South Africa celebrating its 75th year.  I was a member of the Habonim movement in Wynberg, Cape Town, during the 30's and reflect with pride and pleasure on the achievements and the movement throughout the years.
It was unifying, instructive, enjoyable - and a movement in which all of us found tremendous satisfaction and felt proud to be a member.  I am sure that it has contributed materially to the vibrancy of the Zionist movement in South Africa.
Every good wish and we wish for a successful occasion and regret not being able to participate as we live in London."

Thanks for the amazing memories

I was a member of the 'Hub Club' from 1961 thro 1967, in Rhodesia and South Africa. I attended the first Onrust Camp [?1965] - Jules Browde was Rosh Machaneh. Habonim was undoubtedly the single most important influence in my teenage life - many of my madrichim and madrichot were university students involved in some way in the anti-apartheid movement. Our 'heroes' were Martin Luther King and Abba Eban - two of the most eloquent idealists of the times. Habonim was my introduction to what was happening in the world, and how to think critically about it ['Conviction and action' - powerful stuff for those times]. It was also my introduction to such fabulous people, many of whom became life-long friends. How wonderful to be able to re-live some of those times thro this website, and perhaps re-connect with people!

Message from Jonni Swerdlow-"I spent most of yesterday trawling through the web site. What a great job you guys have done!! It is fantastic to see how your generation has embraced a technology that we couldn't even dream of back in the day of snail mail, and put it to incredible use.
Keep up the good work, fight the good fight and "stay forever young"."

How Bertie "The Sandpiper" Stern, the former Manhig obtained his name, from David Kaplan..."Another bloke, Gaby Heimovitz, a youngster at the time -1940's - relates that a sandpiper is a bird that walks up and down the sand at the beach. And that is precisely what Berti used to do at Machaneh, loved walking up and down the beach. There u have it!!!!!"
