Bnei Akiva UK we will be participating in BA's new initiative of Kadima.
This is a once a month program held at the Bnei Akiva Bayit in which the chanchim get to interact with other chanachim of the same age.

Bnei Akiva and COVID - 19 Guidelines
We would like to let you know how BA will be working over this year.
This year because of Coronavirus (COVID-19) a link will be sent out each week asking for you to sign your child/ren up so that we can keep a record of who comes and if G-d forbid someone does catch or starts to show symptoms of COVID-19 then we can let Bnei Akiva know who will pass on the information to track and trace.
Bnei Akiva will then notify you if you are required to self isolate.
Please download the COVID-19 guidelines which have been created by the Mazkirut of Bnei Akiva in accordance with the government's guidelines
