Youth club Haverim (from Hebrew word 'haver' meaning 'friend') started its existence on 10 March 2009 in Jewish Cultural Centre KEDEM. The idea of the youth club's name came from our first 'friend', a hamster named Haver! He lived with us and for many years he was a symbol of creation of the youth club and the loyalty to it.
Today HAVERIM has more than 800 teens that have been actively participating in the life of the Jewish community of Kishinev, and it's hard to believe that it all started from 20 youngsters - program participants - and 2 madrichim – the councelors.
We are 9 years old! HAVERIM is not just a youth club, it's a platform for teens and youth to express themselves: learn something new, share their knowledge and demonstrate their abilities.
Youth club HAVERIM consists of many projects, starting from a wide range of daily programs that include such directions as culture and traditions, education, self-development, art and sport, ending with major camps and festivals, seminars, and volunteer activities, and much more.
Moreover, HAVERIM organizes various events dedicated to different Jewish holidays, participates in community projects, organizes educational seminars, bringing joy to the Jewish Home, since our youth is our future!
Participants of HAVERIM youth club are able to take part in local as well as international projects all year long. Our fellows have been attending Szarvas youth camp in Hungary for many years now.
