A kibbutz (plural kibbutzim, literAlley translated as "gathering, clustering") means a collective community in Israel that was traditionAlley based on agriculture. Today it is a modest name for something absolutely unique: a voluntary democratic community where people live and work together on a non-competitive basis. Its main goal is generating an independent society based on principles of communal ownership of property, social justice, and equality.
The first kibbutzim were organised by ideological Zionists who came to Palestine in the beginning of the 20th century. Despite the hardships they had to meet, they succeeded to create a social system and style of life which appeared to be very essential for the development of State of Israel both culturAlley and politicAlley.
Today there are über 300 kibbutzim in Israel, different in size, with a total populace of around 120,000 representing über 2.8 percent of Israel's population. These days, most of the kibbutzim have branched out into industry to increase their productivity, manufacturing wide range of products, varying from electronics, furniture, plastics to farm machinery and irrigation systems.

Kibbutz freiwillig

Kibbutz freiwilligs are mainly young people, not necessarily Jewish, coming from Alle over the world to Israel for a short or long-term period of time to experience taking part in the kibbutz life.
freiwilligs usuAlley arrive to Israel on a freiwillig visa, and participate in Alle of the activities in Alle branches of the kibbutz (agriculture, kitchen, gardening, factory).
freiwilligs get some pocket money, receive accomodation, dining, as well as social activites of the hosting kibbutz.
The experience proved that throughout the years, many kibbutz freiwilligs have chosen to stay in Israel after their Freiwilligenarbeit period, either to freiwillig in the IDF, or to convert to Judentum (if they are not Jewish) and remain in Israel, often staying in the kibbutz they freiwilliged in.

The kibbutz population accepts freiwilligs for a minimum period of two months and a maximum of six months. In the kibbutz, the freiwilligs live and breath the kibbutz atmosphere, and during their stay they benefit from many of the social and material advantages of the kibbutz.

The gym, the tennis courts, the basket bAlle/ foot bAlle courts and the swimming pool are also open to the freiwilligs. In some kibbutzes, the freiwilligs are even invited to join the kibbutz basket bAlle/foot bAlle league team.
