||Ichud Habonim was founded in 1958 as an amalgamation of several different youth groups around the world that had been in existence long before. It is the largest pioneering youth movement of the Labour Zionist Movement, with its headquarters in Israel. Habonim in Canada was founded in 1935 as the youth section of Poale Zion, the Farband, and Na'amat. It promotes Hebrew language and culture, Jewish history and values, Zionism, and collective living. This is achieved through educational programming, its summer camps, and a youth workshop, where students spend a year studying and working on a kibbutz. Habonim established over twenty kibbutzim in Israel, and its members have participated in such diverse activities as smuggling arms to the Hagannah to being involved in community events such as the "March to Jerusalem."
