Collective Education in the Kibbutz: From Infancy to Maturity

Excerpt

byBertha Hazan

The kibbutz movement is not a utopian movement. Its members do not seek to better their lot by escaping the life around them, nor do they wish to isolate themselves within idyllic rural communes. True, the kibbutz as a pattern of life represents a goal in itself. We want this life, in which we are granted the opportunity to build with our own hands the cells of a new cooperative society, in which there are neither exploiters nor exploited; a society in which each works according to his ability and receives from the community according to his needs, and where the only limitation is the economic capacity of the society to produce and render services. However, we know that this life of ours will continue to flourish only if it constitutes an inseparable part of the new national and societal life taking shape in our country. For us, therefore, the kibbutz is also a means in our struggle for the continued building and coalescence of our national life as a progressive society whose goal is a socialist society.
