Movement founded by Yitzhak Steiger in Sambor (1926) as secular apolitical Zionist youth movement, breaking away from Socialist-affiliated "HaShomer HaTzair", but retaining many of its symbols: Star of David (Judaism & Zionism), fleur-de-lis (Scouting movement), olive & oak wreaths (peace, nature, roots in the land). Originally called "Union of Hebrew Scouts", then "Hebrew Youth" ("Ha Noar Ha Ivri") & finally "Zionist Youth". Based in Warsaw, w/branches in Europe & Palestine, where it est. 30 settlements, incl. Tel Yitzhak, Ein HaShlosha, Mavkiim & Shaar Yishuv.
