The kibbutz is an idiosyncratic phenomenon, existing only in Israel. It has undergone a vast transformation in recent years. Hanan, born and raised in Kibbutz Kiryat Anavim, will discuss in detail, in HEBREW, a variety of aspects of the kibbutz: the founding of the Kibbutz Movement, the why and the how, the history of the founders of Kiryat Anavim, and the big, complex changes in Kibbutz life. The presentation will focus on privatization (Harata), its motivation, process, and influence on life in the Kibbutz.
