Bnei Akiva

Bnei Akiva of the U.S. and Canada, the Religious Zionist Youth Movement, inspires and empowers the Jewish youth of North America with a deep commitment to our people, Am Yisrael, our land, Eretz Yisrael and our Torah, Torat Yisrael, through a wide variety of informal educational programs.
Bnei Akiva members strive to live lives of Torah V’Avodah, combining Torah learning and observance with active contribution to the Jewish people and society, to bring about the rebirth of the Jewish Nation on its land. Bnei Akiva creates leaders who assume responsibility for their community, who take initiative and who actualize the ideals of Torah V’Avodah by making aliyah.
Bnei Akiva programs for the Lehigh Valley chapter are generally held at Congregation Sons of Israel, 2715 West Tilghman Street, Allentown. There are Shabbat afternoon programs each week, as well as special events. Bnei Akiva welcomes all Jewish children between grades three and eight.
