Long before the Six-Day War and Camp David Accords, Jewish settlers and Hamas militants, there was the kibbutz – that early 20th-century experiment in collective living now celebrating its 100th anniversary. Although the majority of Israel’s kibbutzim are now privatised, their pioneering spirit lives on – in Israeli culture, politics and in the nearly 400,000 volunteers from 45 nations who worked on kibbutzim from the late 1960s though the 1980s.
