Where possible, the photographs are displayed in three sizes:
1.. "small" thumbnails shown on this page,
2.. "medium" size which is set to a width of 600 pixels so as to fit onto A4 paper.
3.. "maximum" size is not subject to any width restraints and varies from photograph to photograph. Greater enlargement generally results in degradation of the image quality.

Gideon Shimoni and Eli Sluzny were top-ranking Madrichim in Shichvat Hashomrim; Zvi Jaspan and Joe Lucatz were Schlichim to Habonim, South Africa at the time.

Sadly, two of our members passed away at an early age - Shalom Zausmer in 1998 and Lazer Choritz in 2003.

Beryl Baleson (née Juter) writes: This [photograph] was taken in January 1958, just prior to leaving for the Machon Lemadrichei Chutz Le'aretz, Jerusalem, Israel in February, at a Seminar held at Lakeside, Cape Town (near Muizenberg).We were the largest Habonim group until 1958 to go on this one-year Course.
