WHAT IS A KIBBUTZ?

A kibbutz is a type of Israeli settlement—agrarian collective commune. Deganya Aleph was established in 1910. Israel now has approximately 270 kibbutzim. They are no longer exclusively agricultural, and many are now private. What the kibbutz gives is a unique view of Israeli society. They are also excited to visit.


HISTORY

"Kvutzat," or "group" in Hebrew, was used as the name for the country's first communal settlements. Kibbutz Degania has located a short distance from the Sea of Galilee to the south. Young Jews established a settlement in the nearby wetlands. The JNF bought it. They toiled hard to cultivate the land. These pioneers built an agricultural community. Following Degania, several more kibbutzim sprung up. Many in the Jezreel Valley and surrounding the Sea of Galilee.


VISITING A KIBBUTZ

Most kibbutzim allow cars, and most have motels. This is not an authentic kibbutz experience. Getting the fascinating and unusual vibe requires a tour, which isn't as simple as it seems. Few kibbutzim offer regular tours. Such as this Kibbutz Tour or the Caesarea, Wine Country, and Kibbutz Experience Tour.
