What is HeChalutzim?

HeChalutzim is Hebrew for “The Pioneers,” who were the original settlers in modern-day Israel. Because these original pioneers dedicated their lives to creating the best possible life for their descendants, Israel today is stronger than ever.

In USY, HeChalutzim is the Israel Advocacy specialty club, created so that we too can create the best possible Israel, through Israel programming, advocacy workshops, and fun activities. HeChalutzim is the best opportunity for anyone who loves our land, and wants to support her, through knowledge and action.
