Adam V’Adama – Education, Agriculture, Excellence
Since the 2015 the High School expanded into an educational-agricultural network operating in the Arava desert, the Tavor mountain, in the Golan Heights and in Nitzanim near by the Gaza envelop.
Our High School helps install leadership and values in our young students, born out of the national need to strengthen Israel’s agricultural sector.
Our goal is to revive the combination between education and agriculture as was done in the dawn of Zionism and the foundation of the State of Israel, while promoting educational excellence and gaining life-skills.
Adam V’Adama High School Network was established by HaShomer HaChadash with the aim of educating the young generation to love the land and connect to its soil, while also offering significant help to Israeli farmers.
We believe that agriculture is a cornerstone of our national future and that working the land is the basis for values of leadership and responsibility, perseverance, and humility.
In 2015 we established our first high-school in the heart of the Arava desert, under the supervision of Israel’s Ministry of Education. Leaders of the Land uses educational methods considered to be path-breaking, both in Israel and elsewhere, that combine real-life tasks with meaningful studies.
Our students come from all parts of Israel, from both secular and religious backgrounds. This is in accordance with our avowed aim of creating an involved, connected, and inclusive Israeli society.
HaShomer HaChadash sees itself as a developing force in Practical Zionism, operating in a national and pioneering spirit, and inspired by the HaShomer organization which operated in Palestine in the early days of Zionism. Our organization conducts and leads a variety of educational and volunteering activities in Israel’s agricultural areas and open spaces.
