Bnei Akiva ran a well supported Israel Week, promoting Israel's achievements to the wider community.
More than 200 people celebrated Yom Yerushalayim in London and Manchester with services and guest speakers Rav Ilan Goldman (London) and Rabbi Chaim Kanterovitz (Manchester).
The movement also flew over former Bnei Akiva Israel head Rav Yona Goodman to address north London synagogues and Bnei Akiva events including a dinner for 65 students.
Israel worker Rafi Saltman said the popularity of the week reflected community-wide support for Israel.
BA has also developed LSD (Learning, Seudah, Davenin), a Shabbat programme for 15-to-18-year-olds.
