Join a truly communal Kibbutz community for a day, on our Kibbutz Experience tour from Tel Aviv.
Learn about one of the key segments of early Zionist communities in Israel, Kibbutzim are collective communities based upon a socialist philosophy, with a lifetime membership for their residents. With a long history of involvement in the realization of the Zionist dream and the incorporation of socialist ideology into the Israeli mindset and government structure, they also play a key role in the agriculture and manufacturing sectors of Israel.
We’ll depart Tel Aviv mid-morning and travel an hour north to Kibbutz Ma’agan Michael, situated on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Mediterranean coast. Our guide, a local kibbutz member, will meet us and give a brief introduction about the kibbutz and the lifestyle. Following an in-depth tour of the kibbutz, including observing its extensive fish pools which provide one of the key sources of income, you’ll get to experience and understand the amazing culture and history of the Kibbutz movement as we eat a delicious communal lunch in the kibbutz dining hall.
As one of the last remaining truly communal kibbutzim in Israel, a tour to Kibbutz Ma’agan Michael is a fascinating and unique experience and immersion into one of history’s most influential community structures.
Following our tour and lunch, we will depart for Tel Aviv, arriving back at the Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv in the mid afternoon.
