Yad Achim

Yad Achim is the movement’s anthem, composed by Rav Moshe Tzvi Neriyah during Chol Hamoed Succot 5692 (1932) at a gathering of madrichim in Kfar Saba. The anthem soon spread to become one of the movement’s undoubted symbols. Although the words have changed somewhat, and in the beginning of the 1950s, the tune was also changed (possibly due to its similarity with the ‘Bundistim’ in Poland), no-one can imagine a movement celebration without the singing of the anthem.
