History

Shirley Gurevich was born approximately 1930 and was originally from Vancouver. Shirley married and is now known as Sarah Ehrmann and lives in Israel. She attended Habonim Camp Miriam in ca. 1949-1950. Habonim Camp Miriam began in 1948 when they purchased land on Gabriola Island. However, while the Camp was being built, Camp Miriam held it's first year at Camp Hatikvah on Crescent Beach. Camp Miriam is a vital part of the Habonim program, where its ideals are practiced by living them.

Habonim was founded in 1929 in Great Britain and over a period of years, spread to all English-speaking countries. Each country developed its own independent version of the original movement whilst sharing the core ideology of being a Jewish Socialist-Zionist cultural youth movement. Dror was founded in Poland in 1915 out of a wing of the Tze'irei Tziyon (Zion Youth) study circle. The majority of Tze'irei Tziyon had merged with a group called Hashomer in 1913 to form Hashomer Hatzair, and those who remained outside of the new group formed Dror. The group was influenced by the teachings of the Russian Narodniks. Habonim Dror (Hebrew: הַבּוֹנִים דְּרוֹר, "The Builders-Freedom") is the evolution of these two separate Jewish Labour Zionist youth movements that merged in 1982.
