Many of our graduates have lived on Ben Shemen for between 6-12  years, and consider Ben Shemen their home.    Therefore, it is particularly important to find ways that allow our alumni to maintain a relationship with the Village.

Aviv Graduate Association

The Aviv Graduate Association was founded in order to unite the alumni, employees, and friends of the Ben Shemen Youth Village.  The purpose of the Association is to cultivate the educational heritage of the youth village, in the spirit of the founders and the pupils, towards equality of human value, mutual tolerance in a democratic society, work and creativity, and to the values of Jewish and humane society.  The Association supports different programs in the Village and publishes a yearly newsletter.


The Bashan Graduate Association is for the Alumni of the Village.
