History

Magshimey Herut was founded in 5759 (1999) in order to answer the need for an activist hagshama movement of young adults dedicated to personal implementation of their commitment to social justice, the unity of the Hebrew nation and integrity of the Land of Israel.

Magshimey Herut initiates, promotes and supports the activities of student, oleh and social action groups, which are consistent with the Movement’s objectives. Projects that Magshimey Herut undertakes vary from place to place, depending upon the commitments and interests of individual groups, as well as the specific situations of the communities in each location.
