Become a Kibbutz Member for a day

Great for Bar Mitzvah Missions and Family Tours.

On arrival, a kibbutz member will meet us and guide us on a tour of the kibbutz.

On this tour we find out what it really means to be a kibbutz member – a pioneer! We will start our tour with a fascinating visit to the kibbutz museum where we will take part in the journey from the early days of the kibbutz to the present. We will hear funny stories about the first days of the kibbutz.

The museum tour will be followed by a movie about the kibbutz’s history. Following the museum, we will embark on the experience of being pioneers ourselves. Wearing traditional pioneer’s clothes, we will create our own kibbutz. We will build tents, do the laundry, guard the old guard tower and plow the field – all just like the old days! For the highlight of the day, we will bake fresh rolls in Sonya’s brick oven and, of course, eat them when they are ready!

We will continue with an exciting tractor ride of the kibbutz. Through the journey, we will visit a number of different stations connected to the past and present of the kibbutz. We will see the dairy farm, the industrial section and the family and children’s accommodation. The amazing greenery of the kibbutz fields will accompany us throughout the ride.

At the end of the tractor tour, we will arrive at a special workshop where retired kibbutz members create arts and crafts as their daily work.

It is possible to meet some of the retired kibbutz members – the pioneers – to learn about the first days of the kibbutz and to discover what has happened throughout the years (available mornings only).

* Possibility to change the order of the visit according to the group’s needs.
* Option to add lunch or dinner at the main kibbutz dining room, see menu.
