Hashomer Hatzair Life Movement is a social educators' movement with hundreds of members spread across dozens of locations across Israel. The movement works towards a just, peace-loving Israeli society that has a Jewish and democratic nature in the spirit of the pioneering Zionism of the Labor Movement. The members of the movement live in groups and 'Educator Kibbutzim'. They strive to realize a communal life style and consider human equality as the basis to a life in which each person can express themselves out of commitment to another's happiness. Most of our members are educators as a main occupation and we operate in different frameworks that surround thousands of children, teenagers, soldiers and adults.
How To Make A Social Social Change?" Course"
As part of theThe Social Justice Centers' Activity, we have established social change courses that take place in different parts of the country. Recently, we have established a Social Change Course in Rishon Le'Zion. In these courses of 7-8 sessions, we give people the tools and the knowledge that are required to make a change. The aim is to create local groups that will hopefully continue to act for a more just society in Israel. The sessions' educational content includes a social-economic analysis of Israel, a local point of view on the relevant city, learning about protests and struggles that succeeded to make a change and organizing to act as a group.

They dance and film themselves.
