Erev Gevura is the centerpiece of Shavua Gevura: A Week of Jewish Heroism. Each year, Bnei Akiva of Los Angeles highlights an inspiring Israeli individual/organization. We bring representatives of the organization to nearly a dozen Jewish schools throughout the Greater Los Angeles area to educate and inspire the imagination of our young people. On Erev Gevura (Evening of Heroism) we are proud to present our honorees to the entire community.

Your participation in Erev Gevura supports the core programs of Bnei Akiva of Los Angeles, including: Shlichut, Shavua Gevura, Moshava California overnight summer camp, SNIF shabbat programs and our Manhigut youth leadership training programs throughout the year.

This year, we are privileged to honor My Truth. Join us on October 24th to learn more about this organization, and how it gives voice to our soldiers serving and defending the State and the people of Israel.

We look forward to your participation and support. For more information, contact us at, or click here to purchase tickets.
