Tze'irim Yehudim ve-Lo Yehudim me-ha-Ma'arav ba-Kibbutz: Mehkar ba-Fenominologya shel ha-Zarut ve-ha-Heykerut

By David Mittelberg

Ha-Kibbutz ha-Me'uhad, 1988

The subject of this article is the intercultural meetings of Jewish ulpan (Israeli schools teaching Hebrew in an immersive environment) students and non-Jewish volunteers with their kibbutz-member hosts. Among most of the Jewish guests of the kibbutz there was a normative attraction to the kibbutz as a place of Jewish and Socialist realization, and as an alternate society. The latter proved to be a motive for the non-Jews as well. For both Jews and non-Jew part of the attraction was related to a certain degree of estrangement from their originating cultures. Most of the hosts, however, saw their guests as marginal and temporary residents of the kibbutz, whose motive was primarily an instrumental one - recreation.
