Betar-SA opens a new community bayit

  • Yom H KDS HOME
Betar SA has been growing from strength to strength since returning to SA several years ago - and they opened a new bayit in Glenhazel on Monday. The bayit (Hebrew for house) will now house the JAFI-deployed shaliach’s home as well as their offices - which were previously located at the Beyachad building.

The opening was attended by roughly 60 Betarim, as well as members and leaders of Likud-SA, The Israel Centre, The SAZF and many other Jewish organisations.

Conveniently situated in Cross Street in central Glenhazel, the bayit has a nice but manageable garden, a swimming pool, a number of informal rooms and a meeting room.

It is a Jewish prayer often inscribed on wall plaques or hamsas and featured at the entrance of some Jewish homes

One of their pride-and-joy facilities is a substantial library which was able to start off with a considerable collection donated by long-serving Betar/Likud chairman Leon Reich. Reich, who reintroduced Betar in SA after a hiatus of several years, will be making aliyah shortly,

The keen youngsters got their first month’s rent free as they renovated and cleaned up the house which they are renting. This now becomes yet another communal facility where youngsters can meet and hang around together in a safe environment.

The use of the facility is not restricted to Betar members only.

The bayit also sports a well-equipped, kosher kitchen and good entertainment facilities.
