About Betar

Betar - Tagar Canada is a Zionist youth movement, built on, and inspired by, the teachings and life work of Ze'ev Jabotinsky and the dedication and heroism of earlier generations of Betarim. Its mission is to prepare Jewish youth to become knowledgeable, committed, and effective leaders who will:

  • defend and strengthen the Jewish People and the State of Israel
  • further the development of Israel as a "light unto the nations"
  • contribute to Canada's democratic ideals
  • serve as personal examples of dedication, dignity, and honour.

We will pursue our mission by providing development training and by organizing educational, social, and community action programs for university students and others.
